In 2008, Kandhamal, Odisha witnessed unprecendented hostility where 56,000 people were left homeless, and 308 churches were destroyed. Atleast 101 Christians were killed and 40 women were sexually assaulted.

Yet in faith they smile recognizing God’s faithfulness and grace through the challenges.

On the 12th Anniversary of the violence in Kandhamal, let us join in prayer to uphold our brothers and sisters across the country who are persecuted for their faith.
