Four Christians Assaulted

[215] prayers in [14] nations have been posted for Sri Lankan Believers.

A pastor, his wife and two other Christians were assaulted recently after leaving a birthday party at the home of another Christian. Five villagers confronted the Christians, threatening and verbally abusing the pastor. When the Christians continued walking away, the attackers began throwing stones at them, injuring the pastor’s wife and another female. The pastor later filed a complaint at the local police station. Although Christians in Sri Lanka can worship openly, local Buddhists often stir up anti-Christian sentiment, leading to attacks like this one. Pray for healing of the two injured women, and pray that Christians will have the courage to keep meeting despite these threats.
