Professor K. Anjaneya Swamy is a first generation convert from the Vysya Brahmin community, who came to Lord Jesus through a Gideon Bible. He was a faculty at City College near High Court. After his miraculous encounter with Jesus, he gave up everything to serve God.
He was actively involved in distrubuting Gideon Bibles all acoss Hyderabad, the capital city of Telangana in Southern India. On 21st Jan. 2018 when he was distributing New Testament Bibles, a group of Hindu fanatics confronted him and told him to stop distributing the Bibles. He was taken to the police station where he was kept in custody. He stood firm in his faith and stated that he was exercising his fundamental rights. During this detention he was subjected to physical and verbal abuse. Swamy was released but as he returned home he had a severe paralytic attack and was rushed to hospital where he has been diagnosed with bleeding in the brain.
Please uphold this family in prayer as his condition was very critical and doctors said Swamy will never recover and he will be bedridden for the rest of his life. However, Brother Shibu visited him just a few days ago and wanted to share with us the good news that Swamy is miraculously on the mend and no longer bedridden. It would be great to have him fully recovered - nothing is impossible with our God!
Prayer for Brother Swamy
"'The LORD will strengthen him on his bed of illness; You will sustain him on his sickbed' - Psalm 41:3. Heavenly Father, thank you for Your promise, You are the LORD that heals today, strengthen and restore brother Swamy's health completely in the name of Jesus Christ. Hallelujah! Amen."
Brother Shibu Thomas, founder of Persecution Relief India, was interviewed on Revelation TV’s Persecuted Church, it was a fascinating episode as he shared about the persecution of Christians in India. 64 million Christians live in India. That might sound like a lot, but in a country with a total population of 1.3 billion, they actually make up a tiny minority – less than five per cent. In rural areas Christians are often incredibly isolated.
