Christian Man Abducted and Murdered in Odisha

[275] prayers in [12] nations have been posted for Sukbati Gondi and Family.

Anantram Gondi, a farmer in Odisha state, India, was murdered recently for refusing to return to Hinduism. He and his wife, Sukbati, had come to faith in Christ in 2018 and were active in their church. According to a VOM partner, villagers ostracized them and their five children as a result of their new faith, even cutting off utilities to their home. Members of a Communist political party in the region, the Naxalites, warned Anantram to return to Hinduism and even beat him, but he refused to leave Christ. Finally, they dragged him from his home one evening, and his body was found lying along the roadside the next day. The Naxalites had shot him in the head and left a note warning others against following Christ. “It will be difficult to take care of five children and lead life without him,” Sukbati said, “but I will not give up on Jesus.” The family has relocated to a safer place. Pray for their protection and that they will remain faithful to the Lord.
