All is not calm for Christians in Orissa this Christmas

The withdrawal of the protest called by the Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) on Christmas Day has come as a relief to many Christians across the Indian state of Orissa. But many, especially those who have been victims of attacks in Kandhamal district, are frightened to celebrate Christmas this year. District authorities have asked churches in Kandhamal to avoid holding midnight services.  The following is a report from IBN, an Indian television network.

Thank you for highlighting the plight of believers in Orissa. There are growing numbers of intercessors around the world focused on praying and helping these brothers and sisters. The IBN report was helpful!
