Why lose what you love?

By Dan Etheridge

Pradip*, a Hindu teenager from Nepal, mocked his sister for becoming a Christian. But then he visited a church with a friend, and that same night he saw a flash of intense light in his room. Confused, he started looking for answers, which he eventually found in Jesus.

For Pradip, it was a winning choice, even though it meant being disowned by his parents, kicked out of home and forced to leave their village. Pradip, like many others, knows that choosing Jesus means losing much. But he knows it also means gaining a future with Jesus, something so precious, it’s more than worth the cost.

Could you be inspired by young people like Pradip, and choose to lose something you love to raise money and prayer for Christians who have lost everything because of their faith in Jesus?
