Don't forget the persecuted Church

 This is something new I will be doing on Friday's. I want to make people aware of the persecution that our fellow believers in Christ go through just for Him. You can found them on Facebook as well. Hope everyone has a blessed weekend!

INDIA — Pastors Attacked — VOM Contacts

On June 23, two Assemblies of God pastors, Shiju Kuriakose and Jayan, were attacked by unknown assailants, according to VOM contacts. The pastors were beaten with iron rods while leaving a prayer meeting at a Christian’s home in Bangalore, India. Both pastors were badly injured and were admitted to the hospital. Pray that God will heal their injuries and give them wisdom and strength to continue sharing the gospel.

NEPAL — Pastor and Church Members Beaten by Maoists— VOM Contacts

On June 13, Maoist rebels in Nepal attacked Christians at an evening prayer meeting, according to VOM contacts. The rebels ordered them to stop the meeting and then assaulted the pastor and believers when they refused. Before the attack, the pastor had asked the Maoists to leave and return the next day to talk with him, but the rebels instead began to beat him with sticks. When church members, including the pastor’s father and women in the church, tried to defend the pastor, the Maoists attacked them, too. The rebels also burned Bibles and hymnals during the attack. The following day, local villagers accused the Christians of not paying the “temple tax” and of “converting the local people to Christianity.” Each family was ordered to pay the exorbitant tax, and Christians have been warned that they will be expelled from the village if they do not pay. Some believers have voluntarily left the village, and those remaining risk losing their homes. Pray that God will heal the pastor and others who were beaten during this attack. Pray that they will look to Christ for strength and direction and that their testimonies will draw nonbelievers into fellowship with Christ.

Psalm 5:11–12
