Meet Abishek – a local partner of Open Doors in India. Abishek’s* role is to visit and encourage believers in India who suffer persecution.
“When somebody is in a struggle, maybe somebody is persecuted or attacked in the field, as an Open Doors partner, that is my first duty to collect the information from the field. And as soon as we get the information, if that place is good and not too sensitive, then we go to that place directly and we meet with the believers.”
Abishek shares some stories of how extreme persecution against Christians is becoming in India… Please pray for Abishek as he tries to support those who suffer extreme persecution. Pray for those he visits and supports. Ask God for strength, comfort and hope. Pray for the persecutors, that they would know they are doing wrong, and would come to know Jesus themselves. Pray for the leaders of India, and ask that they would look to defend the rights of all people.
Choosing to follow Jesus takes courage in India. Get your free copy of our new Guts and Courage resource to learn more about the places in the world where Christians face pressure, violence and intimidation for their faith and get inspired to live out your walk with God with more boldness…
We support people who are beaten, tortured,
imprisoned, falsely accused, and hated simply for following Jesus.
