Brethren Assembly, Surat, Gujarat had organized a 3-day convention commencing from 1st Feb to 4th Feb 2018.

On 01 February, Evangelist Samuel Thomas (Mathura) was the first speaker. 5 minutes into the introduction, he was rudely interrupted by a man in the audience, who began to raise aggressive and confrontational questions. Suddenly, a mob rushed in and started shouting and creating a racket. They also demanded that everyone leave the venue.

The Speaker and the believers had to leave the place as they threatened to attack the rest of the congregation. They even roughed up a few of the believers, ransacked and vandalized the venue, throwing chairs etc. with total impunity

They also burned the Holy Bibles, Christian literature and other books which were kept for distribution. The Convention which was scheduled for 3 days is now stands cancelled. Please pray for the safely of the believers across India.

Brethren Assembly’s Church has wholeheartedly forgiven the Persecutors showing exactly the same love that Jesus has shown.
