    Interesting. I know that the Chinese government isn’t welcoming to Christians (or gatherings of any kind for that matter), but India’s higher and a large, democratic nation as well! Do they have any laws that resemble China’s?

    I think India just also has a very large population and very diverse people groups, thus a lot of languages. I don’t think the government is adverse to Christians.

    Interesting. I didn’t think so, but I figured I’d check. I love learning new things!
