Bringing a New Spirit into the House

That's a grim statistic that breaks the hearts of Timothy Rai and Anosh Ghale, two Heaven's Family national missionaries.

Struck, Shoved and Threatened

"Ghar Vapasi" means return home in Hindi. It sounds like a nice idea, but it’s the name taken by a fanatical Hindu movement in India that seeks to reconvert all the people who’ve left Hinduism in recent years. And it’s getting violent.
