Believers of GEMS church at Mirzapur of Uttar Pradesh and the missionary Bro. Timothy were threatened to not conduct prayers and to not preach Jesus Christ.
Bro. Timothy serves as a missionary along with his family in Mirzapur, Uttar Pradesh. On 25th April 2017 (Tuesday) Ashok Kumar Bharti (who is a Block Secretary in Chandauli District) was collecting money (chanda) from the villagers of Khajural. Bro. Timothy was conducting prayers in one of the believers’ houses. Ashok Kr approached that house and also went to every believer’s house and sternly told them to not follow Christ. He also threatened Bro. Timothy to stop conducting prayers and to vacate the place.
