(but DMIʻs Christmas was not cancelled)!
The radical PGP Hindu party has come into power after India’s most recent elections. PGP Party leadership has already begun attempts to outlaw Christian activities like baptisms and inter-religion and inter-caste marriages. In surrounding villages, Christians have been prohibited from meeting due to PGP Party pressure. However, even during this time of mounting persecution, Pranjal is not afraid because he knows our God is faithful. DMI members continued to successfully host their Christmas Program and they are trying to figure out a way to continue baptisms in spite of the PGP Party threats. A possible solution they are considering is to baptize the head of each family and then have that person baptize family members.
