At 4:00 PM yesterday, 9th May 2017, as he was on his way to his house, he was cornered at Road No. 9 of Magadh Colony by five men who had their faces covered. They threatened him, “Will you stop preaching or not?” and when Bro. Sanjay responded, “What mistake are we doing by preaching?” they began to beat him black and blue.



Bro. Sanjay has sustained bruises in his head and all over his body. He was taken to Magadh Medical College hospital for treatment. Pray for his healing and recovery.


This is the fourth incident of persecution in Bihar in the last 30 days; on 9th April Bro. Santosh (Nawada) was threatened; on 14th April Bro. Arun (Dhaka) was opposed by a mob and on 16th April Bro. Bharti (Gaya) was threatened. (Click to read the details: http://news.gemsbihar.org/2017/04/christian-missionaries-continuously.html)

Palanivelu’s house on 5th May 2017. They met with the house owner and threatened & instigated him to vacate the missionary.


After they left the house owner called the missionary and told him to vacate the house. He did not heed to the missionary’s request and has given him time upto 31st May to vacate.
The church construction at Bagah has also stopped due to an issue with the contractor. Pray for the barrier in the church construction to be removed and for it to be completed soon.
