Peoples of Himachal Pradesh, India

Please be in prayer for Deepak and Maya. They have lived in a very hard-to-reach district for many years and are serving faithfully, planting a few churches in their own district itself and in the surrounding districts, and traveling to their various churches every week for fellowship, teaching, and encouragement. Deepak and Maya face much persecution for sharing the gospel within their district, and they are busy encouraging the believers within their fellowships who are facing heavy persecution from their families. Pray for wisdom and discernment for this couple as they minister, and ask for them not to lose heart, as they desire to train believers in gospel sharing and making disciples, all within a very hard context.
