After eight years of imprisonment under false accusations, Pastor Samuel was released on Wednesday 13 March. Gospel for Asia leaders rushed to welcome him as he walked out of jail, greeting him with flowers and praise to the Lord.
Originally accused of Naxalite (Maoist) activities, Pastor Samuel was cleared of all charges in the summer of 2010, but strikes and delayed court hearings prevented him from returning to his wife and 8-year-old daughter.
Instead, he faithfully continued sharing the Gospel with the other prisoners around him.
Many prisoners chose to follow Christ through Pastor Samuel’s efforts and he looks forward to continuing in ministry now that he has been released. Source: Assist News Service
