CWN Editor's Note: Some 100 Christians died, and 50,000 fled their homes, during a 2008 anti-Christian pogrom in the eastern Indian state of Odisha (Orissa). One 22-year-old religious sister recalled, “I saw my people brutally killed for their faith in Christ, but persecution in Kandhamal did not deter me. On the contrary, it pushed me to accept God’s calling.”
