Christians persecuted in Kasaragod,Kerala

Dear Brothers,

I, Johnson James, have reached Trikaripur, Kasaragod District, Kerala in 1999 as a preacher to serve our Almighty. Till 2003, I have conducted prayers in the rent houses where I and my family used to stay. As many local people came forward for prayers, in the middle of 2003 I have started conducting Sunday meetings at JC’s Hall, near Trikaripur bus stand.

In November 2012, few organizations approached panchayat saying that JC’s hall does not run with the consent of panchayat. Therefore, as per the directions of panchayat we approached District Collector. As per the instructions of District Collector, Panchayat Secretary attended our prayer meeting and thereafter there were no issues for a very long time.
