India – Pastor Killed For Sharing His Faith

For a period of more than 2 months, Pastor Vin had been sharing his faith with Sonu, a prisoner who was recently released on bail. Sonu had even been to the pastor’s home for prayer but rejected an invitation to give his life to Christ.

On the evening of 30th June, Pastor Vin received a phone call from Sonu’s brother asking for prayer for a villager who was sick. As Pastor Vin left the village on his motorbike, Sonu who was waiting in ambush, struck the pastor from behind with a wooden beam, knocking him to the ground. Sonu then repeatedly struck Pastor Vin to the point of death. Sonu was subsequently apprehended. His father and brother were also charged for taking part in the murder.

Pastor Vin is survived by his wife and 11-year-old daughter. He was well respected in the community and was a dedicated pastor as well as a registered medical practitioner.

Pastor Vin’s wife, Sunita, believes that he was killed for sharing his faith with Sonu. Despite her loss, Sunita is determined to continue the ministry work of her late husband. “I have resolved to carry on the work my husband was doing and I want to live his dream,” she added. “Vin became a martyr for his faith and I too will die for my faith.”

Pray for Sunita and her daughter, that they will receive the much-needed comfort, encouragement and strength. Pray that the Lord will provide for all their physical and emotional needs.

Pray that God will empower and anoint Sunita as she faithfully and courageously takes over her late husband’s ministry work. Pray that the ministry will flourish and many people will be blessed and receive salvation.

Pray that Sonu and his accomplices will respond to the gospel message, repent of their sins and surrender their lives to Christ.
