PersecutedOrissa, May 11, 2013: Mohan Soren of Dengabahali village, PO. Birosalo, Police station Kongkodahado, Dist – Dhenkanal, Odisha and Rabi Narayan Marandi, Bhalu Tanggaro village, PO Birosalo, Police station Kongkodahado, Dist – Dhenkanal, Odisha, along with their families came to faith in Jesus Christ in February 2013. Both the families felt that they need not participate in their village puja ceremonies and stopped giving their contribution to the temple. Aggrieved by this the villagers planned a strategy to attack the families. One day the angry mob entered Monah Soren house, forcefully took his belongings, costly vessels, rice etc. Later they beat Rabi Narayan Marandi badly and ordered both the families to leave the village immediately. So, with much fear of the mob they fled from their village. Now they are staying in a nearby village.

On 1st of March they informed the Kongkodahado police station regarding the incident but the police did not take any action and on the contrary asked Mohan Soren and Rabi Narayan Marandi to give puja contribution. It is understood that they have informed the SP & Sub-collector, but they too have not taken any steps. These families are in fear of further attacks. Please pray for them so that in this situation they may be strong in the Lord. Pray for the local pastor and other believers near by so they may give them Christian fellowship at this time.
