As many of you may already be aware, the Himalayan Region Vineyard’s AVC release party and conference which was planned for this Fall has been postponed due to political unrest.
There have been ongoing strikes in the Darjeeling area of the Himalayan Region of India. The massive movement of people, foreigners and locals alike, would have attracted undue attention and likely would have had negative consequences. So, the HRV leadership team decided it best to postpone the conference. In the meantime we will pray for a peaceful resolution to the conflict and that our brothers and sisters would be safe and be able to access all the supplies they need during this indefinite shutdown. The aim of the protests is to secure statehood for “Gorkhaland” – so far eight people have been shot dead and the economic repercussions of the strike threatens many with hunger and violence.
The leadership team says:
“We ask the Global Vineyard Family to stand with us in prayer for a peaceful resolve of the conflict and the safety of all peoples on the region. We need your ongoing support for all the opportunities that God has given us to reach the lost for the Kingdom.”
