Courageous Team Returns to Village

February 10th, 2012

A team of Gospel for Asia missionaries and students recently returned to a village where they had been previously threatened and thrown out. The Lord protected them on this subsequent visit, just as He had miraculously spared them during their first outreach there.

But the next evening, hundreds of villagers armed with knives and guns swarmed the house where the GFA team was staying. The home was in an isolated area where there was little chance that anyone would hear the confrontation. But just in time, God sent a Christian pastor who knew the people from his previous work. The pastor was able to calm down the crowd and reason with them. The armed villagers left without harming the GFA team, but they did warn them to leave and not come back.

The team returned to the village in January and passed out 200 more Gospel tracts, along with some other literature, and no one harassed them.

The team asks for prayer that their efforts in this village will bear much fruit, and that the villagers’ hearts will be opened to the Gospel. Pray also for their protection as they continue to proclaim the Good News.
