Praise and Prayer

Praise & Pray: In mid-June, The Voice of the Martyrs' sister mission in Finland, Stephanus-Lahetys Ry, reported that nearly one hundred Indian Christian families were trapped in the village of Funda, in Orissa State. Hindu radicals, blaming Christians for the burning of a Hindu temple in late May were threatening the believers and blocking the roads to prevent them from escaping to safety. By the end of the month, however, news was received from Stephanus-Lahetys Ry that all of the families had successfully left the village and are staying in other parts of Orissa. The Finnish mission sent financial aid to help relocate and reestablish these families. Please pray for them as they seek to rebuild their lives.
