Knowing that his church could be attacked at any time. Knowing the cost, Prasad Bandi continues to serve as its pastor.
Then, during evening services on 22 February 2015, someone on a motorcycle threw a Molotov cocktail at the church. Within minutes, flames had consumed the walls and roof, which were constructed of palm leaves and sheets of plastic. About 60 believers, many of whom had formerly worshipped Hindu deities, were suddenly without a church home. Chairs, Bibles, musical instruments and even Prasad’s motorcycle — essential to his work in and around six area villages — were destroyed.
Prasad, who shares the Gospel in a country where there is a growing movement to make all Indians Hindu, knows the cost of doing God’s work. He also knows that God will make all things new.
Prasad faithfully continues the challenging work of sharing the Gospel on the front line.
