Man in India beaten into coma for refusing to renounce his Christian faith

A group of animist worshipers beat a Christian father with wooden sticks until he fell unconscious. His wife and children tried to revive him, however he would not wake up and none of their neighbors would help them.

On the morning of March 12th, in the Odisha State’s Kodalmetla village, 30 year old Kama Sodi was in his home with his wife and their two children ages 3 and 6. The mob came and started beating the man. They were upset for his evangelistic efforts in the surrounding area. They said they would stop beating him, if he would renounce his faith in Christ. He would not, so they beat him until he stopped responding.

Thankfully, a nearby pastor was able to arrange for the family to go to the hospital and after many days Sodi came out of his coma. The mob ransacked their house and they have very little food, Sodi cannot work and the Covid-19 quarantine prevents his wife from working.

Please pray for this family and for India. This appears to be happening more and more. We need to send more laborers to India. This second largest country in the world needs the gospel. Will you pray? Will you go? Will be a sender?
