India: VBS Leaders Arrested for Kidnapping

Children in India reading the Bible

Sixty children in India were singing Christian songs and reading the Bible as they traveled by train to their VBS camp this summer. When they reached their destination, the police arrived and arrested nine adult VBS leaders for kidnapping the children!

Some Hindus in India do not want Christianity to spread in their country. The VBS group had attracted the attention of radical Hindus during their trip. The Hindus called the police and falsely reported that the VBS leaders were kidnapping the children and converting people to Christianity by force.

Three of the leaders were released on bail after 40 days. But the other six remained in jail.

Please pray that the children’s faith will grow and that they will have other opportunities to learn more about Jesus. Ask God to strengthen the VBS leaders. And pray that Hindus will remember the songs and Bible verses they heard from the children and will seek the truth.
