"After a prayer meeting I and my wife were having our lunch at the dining room.  Our son Barose of 5 years old and daughter Basia of 2 years old were sleeping in the front room. Suddenly we heard the sound of stoning at the front room where our children were sleeping. We cried aloud and rushed to the room to protect the children. When the attackers heard our voice, they stop  stoning  and left", Pastor Baby Paul told.
 
"They were a group of people came by motor bykes and attacked us", Anu Baby, the wife of Pastor Baby Paul said. "Our Lord Himself protected our children under His wings without having any harm".
