Free simulcast to unveil life of oppression for Indian women

As a result of unspeakable abuse, persecution, and oppression, women in India are 21 times more likely to commit suicide than anywhere else in the world.

Human trafficking in India is rampant, and women make up 60% of all trafficking victims. They are taken for many purposes, including sexual exploitation, forced labour, removal of organs, begging, forced marriages, participation in armed combat, and the commission of petty crimes.

Gospel for Asia have produced a new film, Veil of Tears: Hope is on the Way, that tells the story of what many women in India face every day.

“We believe this is one of the most powerful tools available to help fan that flame of passion for the lost, and to raise awareness of this terrible injustice,” said Geoff Darr, Gospel for Asia’s local representative.

Narrated by Dove Award-winning recording artist Natalie Grant, Geoff said the film will transport viewers to the mission field and help them to experience the story of millions of Asian women who face unbelievable abuse and persecution simply because they are women.

“Previous viewers have told us that, as they have seen the life these women are forced to endure—their utter hopelessness without Christ—they have gained a deeper passion to reach those who are lost around them in their local community,” said Geoff.

“Others have begun taking their own walk with the Lord more seriously, and have gained a greater understanding of all that Christ has truly done for them and of His great love for the lost.”

Gospel for Asia would like to invite churches to take advantage of an opportunity to show Veil of Tears in their church or small groups absolutely free.

In partnership with Lifeway Films, they have arranged a free simulcast event that is available to all churches, worldwide, from March 27-31 (Australian time).

Take advantage of this opportunity, or for more information about the simulcast visit www.lifeway.com/Event/lifeway-film-event-veil-of-tears-simulcast
