Christians Attacked During Christmas Celebration

[243] prayers in [12] nations have been posted for Attacked Believers.

As Christians in a rural village gathered to celebrate Christmas beneath a bamboo structure, a group of monks and other villagers began shouting at them and beating them with sticks while pulling down the bamboo poles holding up a tarp. The mob continued to shout abuse and swat the Christians with sticks as they ran from the collapsed structure. According to a VOM worker in the region, the number of attacks on Christians increased dramatically in 2018. Pray for an end to these attacks.
