Bangladesh: Stabbed for Sharing the Gospel

October 30, 2015 by Janelle P in Asia

John* is an evangelist from a church in Bangladesh. A few weeks ago, three strangers came to John’s home and asked him to share about the Bible. As he began sharing the gospel with them, they suddenly shut the front door, pulled out a sharp knife and cut his throat.

The assailants ran away and the severely injured evangelist was rushed to a hospital in a neighboring city.

With incidents like these, it is difficult for Christians to know if they can trust someone who says they are interested in learning about the Bible.

Please pray for John’s healing and divine protection. Also, pray for the believers in that area, especially for their faith not to waver despite the terror. Finally, pray that the attack would not be repeated elsewhere.
