On Aug. 15, police in Mandya district, Karnataka, India, arrested a pastor and an evangelist with India Campus Crusade for Christ, along with 10 other believers, according to The Voice of the Martyrs contacts.
Pastor Satish and evangelist Ravi were conducting a service in a believer’s home when about 30 people entered the home and started attacking them and accusing them of forcibly converting locals. Police arrested the 12 Christians after the attack, and at last report they were still in detention.
Pray for the pastor, evangelist and other believers in detention. Pray that their testimonies will draw non–believers into fellowship with Christ. VOM assists believers in India with Christian literature and Bibles for Christian workers like Pastor Satish and evangelist Ravi.
