SRI LANKA: Pastor and Wife Assaulted by Mob

A pastor and his wife were attacked recently in Deniyaya, Sri Lanka, while returning from a church member’s home.

A mob of about 40 men, along with five Buddhist monks and a local government authority, approached the pastor and his wife, shouting, “Attack them … kill them!”

The pastor was assaulted and accused of spreading Christianity in the area. He and his wife were then dragged to the home of the woman they had just visited, where the mob shouted at the woman and demanded to know how much she was paid to convert to Christianity.

She replied that she had become a Christian based on conviction and was not paid to do so. The pastor was beaten again, but he and his wife managed to escape. He suffered injuries to his legs and body.

Pray that the pastor’s attackers will find Christ, and pray for the healing and restoration of the pastor and his wife.

The Voice of the Martyrs is a non-profit, inter-denominational Christian organization dedicated to assisting the persecuted church worldwide. VOM was founded in 1967 by Pastor Richard Wurmbrand, who was imprisoned 14 years in Communist Romania for his faith in Christ. His wife, Sabina, was imprisoned for three years. In the 1960s, Richard, Sabina, and their son, Mihai, were ransomed out of Romania and came to the United States. Through their travels, the Wurmbrands spread the message of the atrocities that Christians face in restricted nations, while establishing a network of offices dedicated to assisting the persecuted church.
