Missionary Murdered

I saw the news yesterday on Gospel for Asia's Facebook page.  Pastor Ajit, a GFA-supported national missionary, was murdered in Assam, India last week.

Pastor Ajit led a church of 60 people in northeast India and on this particular day, he had headed to town to buy building supplies for the church's very first building.  They were getting close to completing the building project and were looking forward to the dedication.  You can read the full story here, but please be praying.

Pray for the believers in the church to stand firm in their faith and forgive the men that killed their pastor.  Pray for the Lord to raise up more laborers for the harvest and a new pastor for that church.  And pray for comfort for Pastor Ajit's wife and two small children.

Can you imagine if it was your pastor that was murdered?  What would you pray for his family and for your church?  Maybe that will help you know how to pray for Pastor Ajit.
