Pastor Billa Nelson of the Biblical Baptist Church has reported how his brother and Pastor Johnson were beaten by Hindu extremists last night as they were returning from a prayer meeting.

The church has asked police to provide protection for their church building. Hindu extremist action in other areas of India, including the states of Karnataka and Orissa, has seen many church buildings and homes of Christians destroyed by fire. In other areas police have either failed or been unable to protect church property and/or members.

Please pray for our brethren in India.
