INDIA:Two Christians Attacked, Kidnapped and Later Released
On January 17, eight Bajrang extremists attacked a house church in Madhya Pradesh, kidnapping two believers. According to The Voice of the Martyrs contacts in India, "a group of Bajrang extremists attacked a house church in Pathigawan village.Eight men, led by AP Sakhi (Bajrang Area Secretary) came on motorbikes with Bajrang Dal flags at around 8 a.m. and surrounded the house church where worship was taking place. They beat the two kidnapped believers mercilessly before taking them away on their bikes." VOM contacts added the believers were later released."The extremists attacked with swords, sticks, knives and other instruments. Two believers were critically injured in the attack and are undergoing treatment in the hospital," VOM contacts said. Pray for Christians facing difficult situations in India. Pray God protects them and gives them courage to stand in spite of the attacks. Pray for a speedy recovery for the two believers injured during this attack. Ask that God uses their powerful testimonies to draw nonbelievers into fellowship with Him.
