Despite opposition and threats of beatings, a team of seven women who are part of Gospel for Asia (GFA) Women’s Fellowship gave out fifty thousand tracts at the Kumbh Mela festival earlier this year. Coming to the Ganges River in Uttar Pradesh, India, to dip in its “holy” waters, sixty million people attended the Kumbh Mela over six weeks in January and February. Many Hindus believe this pilgrimage will give them forgiveness of sins. The women passed out tracts along busy roads to drivers, roadside vendors, security officials, traffic police and even the “holy men,” many of whom received the tracts eagerly. (ASSIST News Service)
