Saturday 4

A 35-year-old Indian Christian called Awadesh Savita had his shaved as well as half his moustache and one eyebrow and was then paraded through the town of Orai, Uttar Pradesh state, on a donkey. This extreme humiliation was inflicted on him by a group  of Hindu radicals, who falsely accused him of converting three Hindus to Christianity. Around 200 people were involved in the incident and police have arrested 20. Pray for our brother Awadesh that he may rejoice to have been counted worthy of suffering disgrace for the Name of  Jesus (Acts 5:41) who Himself rode through the streets on a donkey (Matthew 21:7).
