SDA Preacher Attacked in Haryana in India.
Yamuna Nagar (Haryana), (SVM News), November 23, 2006: The Gospel Preacher Captain Samuel was attacked by a group of radical Hindus at night on Wednesday, the 15th of November.
He was going back from the Gospel Convention meet at Jagadhari Seventh Day Adventist School after giving the message.
In the very first day of the convention, a group of radicals gathered in front of the venue and waited until the believers left the place after the meeting. As soon as the crowd left, they followed Captain Samuel who was going alongwith Pastor Hansraj Sainy of Godhagiri and Pastor Abishek of Patyala and attacked him.
Radicals stamped him on his chest, dragged and beat him severly that he could not breathe for a while. They then left the place. Even after such a cruel act, Captain Samuel refused to lodge a complaint at the police station or even go to the hospital. He commit everything unto the Lord.
Pray for Captain Samuel, the believers in Haryana and for the radical Hindus for their penitence.
