Orissa Advocacy

To wrap up our week on India and Orissa I’d like to tell you about an easy way you can help bring justice to Orissa Christians.  Representative Trent Franks (R-CA) and Representative Emmanuel Cleaver (D-MO) have jointly sponsored a letter to the Chief Minister of Orissa, Navin Patnaik.  You can send a letter to your representative asking him or her to sign the letter to the Chief Minister of Orissa.  According to Open Doors, who is hosting this campaign, 11 U.S. Representatives have signed on to the letter so far. The more support the letter has, the greater the pressure is placed on the Chief Minister to take action on behalf of persecuted Christians in Orissa.

Just click on the link below. It will take you to a prewritten letter. You may change the wording or keep it. Fill in your name, click the send button and your done! It will only take five minutes of your time but it could have a long lasting impact on persecuted Christians in Orissa

Orissa Christians Still Without A Voice

When you visit www.orissaindia.com, you are met with a normal government website. It talkes about upcoming festivals, shares recent news and displays maps of the area. You would never know that in the actual state of Orissa, India there is exreme violence against a religious minority. The site does not talk about the thousands of Christians who have been killed in that region over the past year, simply for being Christian. Nor does it share the stories of thousands of other Christians who are forced to live in refuge camps because Hindu extremists have burned down thier homes and threatened thier lives. Allow me to share thier stories with you now.




The purpose of the blog

To EDUCATE, ENLIGHTEN and ENCOURAGE. To be a voice to those who have none, a voice that is LOUDER than their persecution, oppression and pain. A righteous voice that is LOUDER than the enemy.
