India is ranked 10th on the World Watch List of countries where Christians face the most persecution—but there is a strong woman living faithfully in the midst of it all. Do you ever wonder what you would do in the face of the toughest persecution? Tehmina Arora has asked herself the same question and seen first-hand what people of faith do: They stand. Today, she shares her journey to God and how He invited her to view the suffering around her with His heart, compassion, and justice. During this conversation, we learn from Tehmina about what our brothers and sisters in India face. As a lawyer focused on religious rights in India, she sees story after story of God’s faithfulness in the toughest of situations.
