Chiyon Brethren Assembly, Vijapura Karnataka
Elder Ravikumara writes:
The ministry in Vijapura, 15 km from Chitradurga, was started eight years ago when Bro. Kantharaj, along with his wife and 3 children came to do God's work. As the work began to grow, they started facing opposition and persecution. Many a time they had to sleep without food and had no money to pay rent. God was faithful in meeting their needs. God enabled them to conduct special meetings and 10 people accepted the Lord Jesus Christ as their personal savior. As a result a new assembly was started on 23 July 2001 and the Lord is blessing the assembly in its growth. Fanatics have continuously attacked and harassed Bro. Kantharaj and the assembly but by God's grace the assembly is still standing and growing. The assembly is not able to meet in his house so they are urgently looking for assistance to finish the assembly hall construction they have started.
