"In the "Hindu Heartland" of India, another church falls victim to anti-Christian attacks. A group of villagers in Chhattisgarh recently destroyed a 300-person church. "It took about an hour for a year's worth of labor to be just completely undone." Lindsea Ackerman of Grand Rapids, Michigan-based Mission India says believers were helpless. "Police were actually present and were pushing believers away who were trying to stop attackers from tearing down their brand new church." It's a difficult time. "This church was built with a lot of joy and hope. Right now, all that exists is just a heap of rubble, and they are discouraged." However, believers are still holding worship services. In fact, they're worshipping God right next to the demolished structure. Pray "that they would have a senses of Christ's presence in their midst, understanding that a building is not what their faith is all about." "
