On Sept. 5, Hindu extremists in Andhra Pradesh, India, destroyed a church building in Patagunta village, according to The Voice of the Martyrs contacts.
The following day, the extremists filed charges against two pastors and three members of the church, alleging that the Christians had destroyed local temples and Hindu idols. Police arrested all five believers the same day.
Pray that these five Christians will have the opportunity to share their faith, even in chains, and pray that they will be released soon. Pray that those behind this injustice will repent of their actions and come to embrace Christ as Lord and Savior.
