Church attacked in India

From AgapePress:

A church planted in India by missionaries with Gospel for Asia has weathered yet another attack. Previously, angry mobs have descended on "The Believers' Church" at Lamding and dismantled its construction. And now, the Christian sanctuary has recently been struck by vandals for the fourth time this year.

This latest attack on the Believers' Church is being blamed on members of India's upper caste, known as the Brahmins. K.P. Yohannan, founder of the evangelical ministry Gospel for Asia (GFA), says these frequent assaults against India's Christians have only increased local believers' faith. "After all these things," he notes, "the believers decided that even if the police and the government will not give them protection, they will camp at the [church] site day and night and rebuild."

Yohannan says it is only by God's grace that nobody got killed in this latest attack, because "the news reached the believers and the pastor that this was going to happen." He adds that the enemies of the church, reportedly, "were actually coming to kill everybody, and [the church members] moved out of sight."
