A trip to India
This summer one of GemStone Media's videographers had the opportunity to go to an area in east India where, a few years ago, over 500 Christians were brutally murdered for their faith in Jesus by Hindu extremists. Through a relationship with a local European church, we were asked to collect stories of the persecution through the eyes of the children who have been left behind, as well as stories of how God has been working among the believers there. Thirty-five children affected by the persecution are living in a safer area of east India in an orphanage called Love and Hope Children's Home.
Love and Hope was created two years ago, and because of lack of finances, it has struggled to provide basic necessities for the kids. GemStone Media is in the process of helping this European church make a video to communicate the need for financial and prayer support for Love and Hope, as well as developing profile pages for individual child sponsorship there.
