Please Pray: Hindu villagers wanted organizers of Christian film to be killed in Bihar, India [#NeedYourPrayers #ChristianPersecution #IndiaPersecution]

Immanuel Tirkey and about 100 villagers were watching the end of a Christian film in Bihar state, India, when a man stood up in front of the screen and began shouting, “Who is the operator here? Who is the operator here?”

“They were shouting at the family that they are supporting in converting Hindus to a foreign faith, and that we must be killed – ‘Release them to us. We will see their end,’ they kept shouting. “We did not know what to do.”
– Immanuel Tirkey

Please Pray for Pastor Hkalam Samson in Myanmar facing prosecution / imprisonment after revealing religious persecution in meeting with President Donald Trump [#HkalamSamson #ReligiousPersecution #MyanmarPersecution]:

The Baptist minister, Pastor Hkalam Samson, president of the Kachin Baptist Convention and a leading rights advocate for a predominantly Baptist ethnic group in northern Myanmar known as the Kachin told President Donald Trump that ethnic groups in his homeland were being “oppressed and tortured by the Myanmar military government” and thanked him for imposing sanctions on 4 top generals.

Now, as if to prove Pastor Hkalam Samson right, a colonel in the Myanmar Army has gone to court seeking to have the minister prosecuted for his comments about the military during that conversation with President Donald Trump.

Pastor Hkalam Samson who returned home to the northern Myanmar city of Myitkyina after his White House visit, said he was waiting to see whether a court would accept the complaint of the colonel.

A judge is expected to rule whether the case can proceed.
