Pastor and family rescued from aggressive mob, West Bengal

Pastor and family rescued from aggressive mob, West Bengal 

A mob of religious fanatics surrounded Pastor Christian Paul and his family, threatening to physically assault them as they were ministering to a few believers in Puralia District.

Pastor Christian Paul ministers with “Full Gospel Church” at Bardhaman district for several years. He had travelled along with his wife and daughter  to Muradhi village, Puralia District, to visit a sick  believer family.

While he was at their home, encouraging and praying with them, the home was suddenly surrounded by a group of religious fanatics who abused and threatened to beat him up, alleging that he was involved in conversion activities.  As allegations and arguments escalated, one of the sisters rescued Pastor and his family and hid them in her home.

Soon, news travelled and several Christians and Church leaders, rushed to the spot and diffused the situation.

Pray for the protection of Pastor Paul and his family, and for the Christians in Muradhi village, that they would continue to be steadfast in their faith.
