On August 24, Gospel for Asia-supported missionary Hemraj visited a village to share the love of Christ. The village is dominated by people who oppose Christianity. When Hemraj gave a tract to one particular man, he threw it to the ground in front of the missionary. Four young men then grabbed Hemraj’s remaining literature and started to beat him.
As they beat the pastor, one of the young men accused him of forcefully converting people to his religion.

Hemraj fell to the ground and tried to protect his face during the attack. At last, he managed to get away. “While they were beating me, once my breath stopped, but somehow I escaped,” he said. Hemraj suffered injuries to his back. He is also unable to move his right hand because of severe pain.

Please pray for:
  • Healing for Hemraj, so he can continue his ministry.
  • Those who beat him to understand God’s love for them.

May the blood of Jesus Christ cover, bless and protect you!
