But what if your water was shut off for a different reason?
What if the city turned off your water, on purpose, because you believe in Jesus?
That’s precisely what happened to Arjun and Neha in their rural village in India.
Meet Arjun & Neha
Arjun is a bread deliveryman. He wakes up at 4 a.m. each morning to deliver bread, cakes and donuts to nearby villages on his bicycle. He doesn’t return home until late at night to see his wife, Neha, and his two daughters, Rena and Pari.
During a low time in Arjun’s life—after he had lost a job and struggled to find hope—a friend introduced him to a pastor. The pastor listened to Arjun’s problems and told him about Jesus. At that moment, Arjun gave his life to Jesus.
“From my true heart I have trusted God,” Arjun says.
Arjun came home and shared his new faith with Neha—who also believed. But after Arjun and Neha decided to follow Jesus, the persecution started almost immediately. In rural India, leaving the village faith is seen as a betrayal to the tribe and even family. First, their in-laws wouldn’t enter their home, and they were shunned by the other people in the village.
