INDIA:Attacks against christians in two different states

There have been reports in early December from two separate states in India that attacks against Christians occurred, according to Evangelical Fellowship of India.The first attack occurred in Sangur, Punjab, where two Operation Mobilization workers, Pani Garhi and Kitan Bhai, were attacked by Hindu extremists as they were distributing gospel tracts. The extremists took the men to the police station accusing them of forceful conversation, but authorities refused to file charges against them. The second attack occurred in Bangarapet, Kolar, and Karnataka on December 14th during a Christian function held by Helping Hands, an organization which helps rural women and children. Hindu extremists barged into the Christian function, burned the gospel tracts, and then dragged the director of Helping Hands, Samuel Moses and his accountant, to the police station accusing them of alluring the people to convert to Christianity. Mr Moses and his accountant were detained for nine hours then released although an investigation is on going to confirm whether they are guilty of forceful conversions.
Pray that Samuel Moses and his accountant will not be charged with any wrong doing so they can continue their work for the Lord in India.
Pray that all Christian ministries in India will boldly continue to proclaim the Gospel of Jesus Christ in spite of the Hindu extremist attempts to weaken and bring fear among Christians.
Pray against the spirit of darkness which covers India in order that the message of the Gospel will go forth, and bear fruit.
As in the days of Noah....
