-- A Gospel for Asia (GFA) missionary is recovering after being beaten
unconscious by a group of men who attacked him as he tried to show a film on the
life of Jesus to villagers last month. The 26-year-old evangelist, identified
only as Titus, was strangled, punched and beaten with sticks in the Feb. 18 attack.
Other members of the film team were also severely beaten, but managed to
escape. "It is very important that we pray for the Lord to intervene in this situation,"
GFA officials said in an e-mail to supporters. "Let us also pray that the hearts
of the villagers will be drawn to Christ as they witness the courage of Titus."
Elsewhere, police in a village in northern India joined radical Hindus
in recently expelling a native missionary who graduated from a Bible training
institute in that region, according to Christian Aid Mission (CAM).
the last two years, he established a congregation of more than 40 believers and
had another 40 who were being prepared for baptism," a source told CAM. "He recently
conducted a crusade in his village where about 500 people came and heard the gospel.
Many were miraculously healed."
