India - Sunitha attacked whilst preaching


For well over a year we have been astounded at MKCC by the story of Sunitha from the region of Andhra Pradesh in India.

Homeless after the death of her father this young lady grasped the baton from her dad and vowed to continue his work. Caring for the poor and reaching remote idol worshiping villages with the Gospel.

As well as caring for and feeding orphans on a daily basis with no outside sponsorship or help she has planted churches in over 50 villages. MKCC is now assisting through LightForce International in her endeavours in building the Home of Faith.

So it was sad to receive the following e mail from George Ridley, Director of LFI on Sunday:

"Our friend Sunitha has been attacked and had boiling water thrown over her whilst trying to share the gospel in a new idol worshipping community in India.

Her leg is badly burnt and she is in hospital - for the moment can't walk. She was praying & fasting up to Easter asking God to do great things through her Easter evangelism.
This is just one of a number of current challenges. She is committed to returning to the village asap but the doctors want her to remain in hospital. Please pray seriously for her at this time - she is adamant she'll return to the village soon to fulfil her purpose &plant a church.

Hospital treatment will be costly - you can give today through MKCC website by clicking here. Please choose "Home of Faith" when giving. 100% of all gifts will be forwarded through LFI to Sunitha."

The people of MKCC have already given £690 towards her medical expenses. Please consider supporting this inspiring young lady!
