Police in the city of Jaipur, Rajasthan, northern India, detained a group of 20 Christians distributing leaflets to local residents on 26 February. Inside the police van and at the police station, the Christians were kicked and beaten with belts and sticks. Then they were released. Although the Church in India is growing fast, so is harassment of Christians especially those engaged in outreach and witnessing for the Gospel. Pray that they may count it pure joy to face such trials and testing (James 1:2).
