Mob Threatens Christians

[222] prayers in [16] nations have been posted for Harvest Mission Church.

On July 8, about 50 villagers carrying sticks interrupted the Sunday morning worship service at the Harvest Mission Church in Kiran. The mob, which included some local government officials, threatened to attack if the Christians did not stop their religious activities within 15 minutes. Fearing for his church members’ safety, the pastor stopped the service and the mob dispersed. Pray that these believers will continue to meet for corporate worship.
