Prayer Alert, May 8th, 2015
Three people, including a young girl, were seriously injured and many others were wounded when a 100-strong mob armed with swords and sticks raided Amtola village. Pranita Rabha, aged seven, suffered serious chest injuries and clots in her brain.
The Christians were all reported to have fled and are being cared for in hospital or a safe house. Their homes were destroyed.
Tensions have been rising since last year when five families from the Rabha clan began attending church after seeing a villager healed of cancer. Hindu extremists have attacked the new Christians five times since December.
Appeals for help made to the police and village elders have been ignored. The only arrests made after the attack on Amtola in April were two Christians: one of their assailants reportedly died after falling and hitting his head during the raid.
Please pray for these Christians in Assam. Pray that God will heal the injured, including young Pranita, and provide a safe place for them to rebuild their lives. Thank God for their courage and faith in the face of strong opposition.
