Living her best life now

From World Net Daily (Click to see photo and rest of story)

Hindu extremists may have burned a 10-year-old Christian girl's face, inflicted shrapnel wounds on 40 percent of her body and forced her family to hide in a forest and flee to a refugee camp in Orissa, India, but her plight hasn't shaken her faith and thankfulness to God this season.

"Christmas is a time to thank the baby Jesus who saved me from the fire and saved my face which was disfigured and wounded," Namrata Nayak told Asia News.

Nayak's face was severely mutilated after Hindu extremists bombed the home where she was staying on Aug. 26. They broke into the house and burned it while Nayak and her siblings hid in a small bathroom. Before exiting the home, they left a bomb in a dresser, according to the report.

While the little girl surveyed the destruction, the bomb detonated and burned her face.

The explosion also lodged shrapnel into her face, hands and back.


Maybe we can get the Osteen's out to Orissa, India, to promote their latest books ("Become a Better You" and "Love your Life") and keep these kind of things from happening to Christians in foreign lands.

Really makes one think about how Obama appointed Sonal Shah, a supporter of Hindu extremism, to his transition team.

I will pray for that young lady, for her attackers, and for all those that do not know our Lord.

I'll also pray for all those who have the guts to stand up for Jesus Christ and proclaim Him no matter what the fallout might be.

This is an important story that must be told to others. Praise God for her faith. Thanks for bringing it to my attention.
