India – Pastor Forced to Flee

Pastor Sanjay, his wife and children, and several members of their church in Shyampur, Uttarakhand, were taken into custody on 13th June because of a complaint that they were violating COVID-19 protocols.

However, instead of being questioned about the alleged breach of COVID-19 protocols, he was interrogated about the ministry of his church and accused of converting others to the Christian faith by giving financial incentives to them. He was also beaten, whipped with a belt and had insults hurled at him.

The detained believers were eventually released. Pastor Sanjay was asked to move out of the village upon his release. His landlord asked him to vacate the home he and his family had been living in and no one else in the village was willing to rent any accommodations to them. So, Pastor Sanjay and his family had to leave the village and move to an undisclosed location for their safety.

Church members continue to face ongoing opposition and pressure to abandon their Christian faith and to stop attending fellowship.

Please uphold Pastor Sanjay and his family in prayer. Pray that as they adjust and settle into their new home in a new location, they will experience a time of healing and spiritual refreshment. Pray that they will find divine guidance and direction for future ministry opportunities.  

Pray for the church in Shyampur, that they will find the courage and strength to stand firm in their faith.
