Faithful Preacher Dies After Beating by Hindu Radicals

[171] prayers in [16] nations have been posted for Sita and children.

Biman was preaching the gospel in five villages near his home, intending to plant churches. In one village, he was tutoring poor children, hoping to also lead their parents to Christ. In February, while ministering to these children, Biman was surrounded by a group of radical Hindus who attacked him. Many others joined in and beat the pastor mercilessly. By the time they stopped, he was badly bruised. Biman managed to get back home but was experiencing severe pain. His health steadily deteriorated, and he died from his injuries the next day. Biman is survived by his wife, Sita, and two children, ages 8 and 10.

  • Lord God, I believe that Psalm 73 applies to Biman "You guide me with your counsel, and afterward you will receive me to glory.". Make your nearness known to Sita and her children "My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever.". Provide for all their needs-- income and education, friendship, etc

  • Praying 4 you
    John 16:2""4
    They will put you out of the synagogues. Indeed, the hour is coming when whoever kills you will think he is offering service to God. And they will do these things because they have not known the Father, nor me. But I have said these things to you, that when their hour comes you may remember that I told them to you. Pray4mercy
