Pray for Manjula and Her Children, Who Were Kicked Out of Their Home

India

A new believer in India has been kicked out of her home, along with her children, because she converted from Hinduism to Christianity. Manjula, 37, had long worshiped at Hindu temples and shrines, but after learning about Jesus from a Christian woman, she began attending church with her mother and two teenage children. Her husband told her that she could attend church if she did not make her faith public. Nevertheless, she boldly shared her faith with others, and more than 10 other families became Christians through her witness. When Manjula’s husband found out, he beat her and demanded that she and the children leave the house. They are now living with Manjula’s mother in another village. Please pray for this family, and pray that the kids will be able to continue in school.
