New Delhi(April 1)- In recent time, the work of God is much more intense and desperate than ever before in India. When persecutions intensified and even a law to ban conversions has been imposed in many state governments in India which are seen as the only way to stop any kind of conversions, the work of God also increases and many people are coming to Christ.

During a four-day gospel meeting in this remote island region of India, attendance grew to 2000 with some 300 professing faith in Christ for the first time.

As these and other deliverances occurred, many Muslims and Hindus who attended came forward to accept Jesus as their
At another meeting held in a marketplace, over 90% of the attendees were non-Christians. Several individuals who watched from a distance noted that many in attendance rushed to the missionaries when miraculous healings occurred. One man who could not move his hand or leg was delivered and healed by prayer and some 60 souls were saved. Contact with the tribal members ranged from large meetings to individual
interactions. During the month-long crusade, some 500 people professed faith in Christ.
