On June 23, two Assemblies of God pastors, Shiju Kuriakose and Jayan, were attacked by unknown assailants, according to VOM contacts.
The pastors were beaten with iron rods while leaving a prayer meeting at a Christian’s home in Bangalore, India. Both pastors were badly injured and were admitted to the hospital.
The Voice of the Martyrs supports and assists persecuted believers in India. VOM ministers to persecuted believers by providing emergency medical treatment and ministry resources like motorbikes for pastors.
Pray that God will heal Pastor Shiju and Pastor Jayan and give them wisdom and strength to continue sharing the gospel. Pray they will forgive their persecutors and for their testimonies to draw non believers into fellowship with Christ.
