Amos* enters this gospel-deprived village sharing the gospel when suddenly a man surrenders his life to Christ. It was beautiful and sudden, considering the reality that this man’s community lacks a sufficient gospel witness. To give you a clearer picture, the vast majority in this community has yet to hear the gospel one time.
In all the joy taking shape, this man’s wife was not so excited. In fact, to describe her demeanor as irate is an understatement. She’s irate because they are from a Muslim community and leaving one’s family religion meant turning one’s back on their family.
Attacks are on the rise against Christians in South Asia. Yet despite this reality, Amos* takes every opportunity to share the Gospel because the need to deliver the Gospel to those without access far outweighs his own safety.
Back in July, Amos met Sharma. Sharma comes from a strong and dedicated Hindu family. His family has strong ties to the local temples. Knowing the reality taking place in his country, Amos met Sharma and shared the Gospel while Sharma was doing work at Amos’ home. Rather than pushing back, Sharma’s interest peaked. They began spending time together and eventually Amos led Sharma to Christ. And, this was no small decision.
Isaac* recently gathered a few believers together to train them. They learned how to share the Gospel and make disciples. Afterwards, they went out and identified five new villages who need Gospel access and began engaging.
This is genuinely how simple it is. Isaac has a passion to deliver the Gospel to those who lack access to it. He is serving in a province where it is illegal to share one’s faith with Hindus. Hindus may not acknowledge this fact but the anti-conversion laws in place are so vague that one could interpret any salvation as a forced conversion.
