Karuna, a church leader who lives among Brahmin (Hindu upper caste), lost his home and belongings in early January 2014 when villagers burned his house because of his evangelistic work.
While his primary job is to visit and encourage believers in the area, he also has led many Hindus to Christ, angering those in the village. On several occasions, villagers have threatened to kill Karuna, his wife and their two children if he continued to evangelise.
The villagers burned Karuna’s home while he and his family were away fellowshipping with other Christians and repeated their threat to kill him if he continues preaching the Gospel. VOM is supporting the family during this time.

- Pray the Lord’s protection will be upon Karuna and his family.
- Pray for the perpetrators and those making threats, may the Lord frustrate their plans and change their hearts.
