There is persecution to face, too. Landowners, fearing the overthrow of traditional systems, have had converts tortured and killed. One young man began to proclaim Jesus in his village soon after his conversion. Within weeks he was beaten to death, but today a church has been planted in that village.

In another village, a Christian leader called Sandhu was arrested and forced to stand on red-hot bricks for 10 minutes. This was to be the test: if he was not burned, his faith was the true one. While the other Christians prayed, Sandhu stood on the coals and was not burned! That very day, 47 new converts were baptised.
