Gospel for Asia–supported pastor Kundan Bose and his congregation in South Asia have been asked to vacate the place where they had been meeting for worship for the past couple of years.
They had been meeting in the home of a believer, Victor Pillai, but he died in January. Two of his grown sons informed Kundan that he can no longer have services in their father’s home.
“Pastor, our father is no more; therefore you need to vacate the house,” they told him, “and there won’t be any spiritual activities here from now on. We are going to live in this house.”
The two men are opposed to Christianity and have been making life more difficult for Kundan and Victor’s other two surviving sons, who know the Lord and are active in Kundan’s church. Many others in the village are also opposed to the Gospel and church activities. The situation is tense for the believers who live there.
The growth of Kundan’s church congregation is nothing short of a miracle. For hundreds of years, the villagers in this tribal community have worshiped multiple deities. Black magic practices and witchcraft are established village traditions.
With a zeal to see the people of this village reached, Kundan spent years faithfully sharing the hope of Christ with them. This whole village is considered by society as untouchables, and Kundan demonstrates the love of Christ by ministering to their tangible needs with gifts from the GFA Christmas Gift Catalog.
Kundan has joyfully witnessed dozens of these villagers personally embrace the redemption Christ offers. This is cause for rejoicing even in the face of the current situation in this village.
GFA leaders request prayer for the situation in this village:
- Believers in Asia know they could face opposition at any time.
- Join South Asian believers as they gather in their new church building for the first time.
- Read what it means for a congregation in Asia to be blessed with a church building they can call their own.
