Church Disbands Because of Hindu Persecution

[313] prayers in [17] nations have been posted for Pakhluwa Church Members.

The Pakhluwa Eternal Life Church in Palpa district, western Nepal, grew to 30 members in nine months before high-caste Hindus began to object. At first the Hindus complained about the guitar and drums the Christians used for worship music. But when the church quit using musical instruments in worship, the Hindus began demanding that the church stop celebrating the Lord’s Supper. The Christians then opted to travel to another church 30 miles away to celebrate Communion with other believers once a month. Community opposition continued, until finally the church members decided to start meeting in homes instead of their church building. Attendance fell by half, until the church disbanded in November. According to the overseeing pastor, Nepali Hindus have been influenced in recent years by Hindu extremist from India. Pray that these believers will regain the courage to meet for fellowship.

We know Satan will continue to prowl, seeking out your people no matter where they go until Christ comes again. Please help Your saints in Nepal to be able to worship together and let the Hindus be convicted of their wickedness and turn to Jesus who is mighty to save.
