Pray for Pastor "Arul" and Evangelist "Omkar", Beaten by Radical Hindus

[251] prayers in [20] nations have been posted for Arul and Omkar.

More than 30 radical Hindus interrupted a worship service on March 15 and began beating the pastor and another church leader. They attacked Pastor “Arul” and another evangelist, “Omkar,” before dragging them to the police station, where they were charged with “forcing conversions.”  The pastor was later treated for two broken ribs. Pastor Arul’s house church has about 20 members, who meet each week in a rented location. Hindu extremists have threatened the Christians and have told the property owner to evict the church.
