Pastor Sultan Masih, 50, of Temple of God Church was found shot dead 15 July in northern India’s Punjab state.
His martyrdom took place in front of his church, two months after Hindu extremists witnessed his church celebrating its 25th anniversary.
While he talked on his mobile phone outside of the church building, two young men on a motorcycle drove up to the pastor and shot him in his neck and chest. His family believes the attackers called him on his phone and told him to go outside.

- Pray for the church and its leaders as it continues to be a light in its community amid growing opposition.
- Pray the legacy of Pastor Sultan and the testimony of his church family may act as a witness to the Gospel, even to the perpetrators.
