Mob Surrounds Church and Threatens Pastor

A group of about 100 angry locals surrounded a church in Beliatta during Sunday services recently, damaging windows, removing Christian symbols from the front door and vandalizing motorcycles parked outside. A few people even entered the church and told the pastor they would kill him if he did not stop worship activities and leave the village, a threat reinforced by a Buddhist monk who arrived later. The situation was defused about an hour later, when police arrived to escort the pastor from the church building. Pray that church leaders and members will hold fast to their faith and be able to develop better relationships with those who oppose them.
