 Missionary Finally Released from Prison

Missionary Finally Released from Prison

Aug. 30, 2011 – Gospel for Asia
Pastor Roshan Kuma talks with another GFA-supported missionary moments after he was released from prison after serving 17 months for a crime he did not commit.

Roshan Kuma and his brother-in-law, M.T. Joshri, are shown with their families shortly after being released from prison.

Gospel for Asia-supported missionary Roshan Kuma was released from prison August 10. He served 17 months after being falsely accused of working with the Maoists, an anti-government terrorist group. Roshan, and his brother-in-law, M.T. Joshri, were arrested March 10, 2010.

He was released after a trial found him innocent of the charges brought against him.

Although Roshan was in prison, he did not let it stop him from his calling to share the Gospel. He shared the love of Jesus with fellow prisoners, many of whom chose to follow Christ. He also started a prayer meeting in the jail.

“In spite of spending more than a year of suffering in prison, Pastor Roshan’s vision for serving Jesus never dimmed. He still has an unquenchable thirst and passion for the ministry,” said Dr. K.P. Yohannan, Gospel for Asia president and founder. “He is still serving in the same area where there is a lot of Maoist activity, which causes many people to live in fear. Yet he has a successful and wonderful ministry in this small village.”

At the time of his arrest, Roshan was pastor of a church with about 100 members. The believers continually prayed for their pastor while he was in prison. The church continued to grow and now has about 125 people attending worship each week.

Roshan’s congregation is in the midst of constructing a new church building, which they plan to dedicate this fall.

“Please pray for Pastor Roshan, that God would continue to use him mightily for the Kingdom,” K.P. asked.

“Praise the Lord for using Pastor Roshan in prison, and for the inmates who chose to follow Jesus. Pray that they will stand firm in their faith—even while they are in prison.”

Please continue to pray for Pastor Samuel, another GFA-supported missionary who has been in prison for eight years.
(Praise God! But we praise Him also for using this mighty man of God in prison to bring many to Him. It doesn't matter where we are as long as it is where God has us sharing His great Salvation! Glory Hallelujah. I have been praying for Samuel for a while now. I know he also is sharing the Gospel in prison. We pray for protection, provisions, grace and lots of ears open to hear and receive the Gospel. Amen and Amen. Souls for Your Kingdom Lord.)

 Re: Missionary Finally Released from Prison

I am going to Praise God for this good news. We dont often have this good news. So we praise You Lord and give You all the glory. And I pray that this Brother and others will continue to be led by You to share You with all.

And those in prison - strength, grace, revelations of Your great love and give them a hope and a Word to share and open the eyes of the guards and the other prisoners that they may see you You - Jesus high and lifted up.

Lord I pray revivals will break out in all the prisons & camps where Your children are. Pour out Your Holy Spirit and show Yourself in these places O God. You said we can ask and I am asking along with many others Lord. Come Lord Jesus and be glorified. We will give You all the praise & glory. Amen and Amen
