Three Bible college students and a missionary leader were severely beaten in Asia.
Kamik Sandbahor, who serves on the staff of the Gospel for Asia state office, was leading a team of students from a local Bible college as they visited villagers in a rural community. Kamik, Jatrinda, Ajmal and Sanjavin were handing out Christian literature when they were attacked by a gang of about 25 young men wielding iron rods and sticks.
"Yesterday, these faithful servants were receiving medical treatment in a hospital for the injuries inflicted by these anti-Christian radicals," says GFA President K.P. Yohannan. "Today, they are a bit discouraged that their expressions of love and concern for the people were returned with violence and injury.
"I ask that Christians around the world pray for these young men, that God will strengthen and heal them, and fill their spirits with His encouragement. Pray also for their persecutors, that their hearts will be softened by the example of love shown by these students and their courageous leaders."
