Our Senior Minister’s grandson, Jonah Bratton, is very sick. At Christ’s Church we’ve been praying for Jonah and his family since he got sick over a week ago.
Dennis has been sending updates on a regular basis. His update today included a reminder of the fact that Christians are still being persecuted in our world today.
Please pray for Jonah and our brothers and sisters in Christ in India.
Here’s an excerpt from Dennis’ update for this morning:
Vivek Lall, our mission partner in India, just called to tell me some disturbing news. Their church in Jabulpur, where Brenda and I have been, was praying for Jonah during their Sunday evening service when about 20 armed Hindu extremist broke in with knives and clubs and beat up men, women and children. Several of the Christians are hospitalized and in critical condition. In a related incident yesterday, the same extremists threw rocks at one of the mission’s preachers, hitting his wife who died as a result. Please keep these brothers and sisters in Christ in your thoughts and prayers.
