 India; Two pastors beaten, kidnapped



Anti-Christian elements in east-central India’s Chattisgarh region beat and kidnapped two native missionary pastors serving with Gospel for Asia Tuesday, Oct. 5, as they were preparing to baptize 32 new believers.
After beating the two missionaries, named Tulsiram and Vijay, the attackers dragged them out of the village and took them to an unknown location. The kidnapping was part of a plan to “stop them from continuing ministry in the village.” Vijay managed to escape and ran nearly 25 miles to tell the GFA district leader about the incident.
The district leader informed GFA’s Chattisgarh state office and rushed to the village where the kidnapping took place, hoping to secure Tulsiram’s release. His whereabouts are still unknown.
Tulsiram graduated from a GFA Bible college in 2001 and began his ministry among an unreached group. The 32 believers whom Tulsiram planned to baptize were the first converts as a result of his ministry in the village.

Pray for brave hearts for the sake of a growing testimony.
Pray for brave hearts for the sake of the salvation of men in authority.

 Re: India; Two pastors beaten, kidnapped


Dear Friend in Christ,

We received news from the field that Pastor Tulsiram was released yesterday after being beaten and kept overnight in a secret location. Let us thank God together for the speedy release of our dear brother. Thank you for standing in the gap with us to intercede for him. Your prayers have made a difference. Please visit to read the rest of the story and how you can be praying for this village in Chhattisgarh, India.

Please pray for our native missionary pastor as he recovers from the incident and continues to share the hope of Christ among the unreached, even in the face of such opposition.

Your brother in Christ,

K.P. Yohannan
