Pastors Beaten by Militants in Andra Pradesh

From Voice of the Martyrs:

"On April 14, three pastors--who were distributing Christian tracts to children in the town of Devarkonda, Andra Pradesh--were beaten with sticks by approximately 50 Hindu militants. Pastor John Kumar's hand was broken and the other two pastors were severely injured in the attack. Pray for healing for these believers. Ask God to give them and other church leaders in India the wisdom to know how to shepherd the believers through times of suffering. James 1:5, Psalm 91"

Where there is great love, there is willingness to suffer. Oh, that we might love Jesus to the extent that we also are willing to suffer for the sake of the Name. "But rejoice insofar as you share Christ's sufferings, that you may also rejoice and be glad when his glory is revealed. If you are insulted for the name of Christ, you are blessed, because the Spirit of glory and of God rests upon you" (1 Pet. 4:13-14).
