Missionary Badly Beaten

ICC Note

 Missionary brutally beaten for ‘blasphemy against traditional gods’ en route to prayer meeting

11/6/2011 Nepal (ANS) – Six men attacked and brutally beat a Gospel for Asia-supported missionary October 17 in Nepal. The men accused Indra Rai Waglan of blasphemy against their traditional gods. They also accused him of forcing all the members of two families to convert to Christianity.

Indra and an elderly believer were traveling to a neighboring village to conduct a prayer meeting when the attack happened. After the attack the men left him unconscious beside the road. He was later able to get medical treatment. He has a broken rib and bruises all over his body.

The police have indentified and charged six men with the attack. Their case is now before the court.

The believers in Indra’s community ask for prayer for his complete healing and for him and his family to stand firm in their faith in Christ. They also ask for prayer that the six attackers will receive grace from the Lord and choose to accept Him as their Savior.
