(Worthy News) - Last month, local police escorted a mob that stormed the home of a 70 year-old man in India's Odisha state, assaulting all the Christians who were inside.
According to Barnabas Aid, Pastor Sushil Lima -- who was visiting an elderly Christian in Kanheipur village -- was arrested on false charges of performing forced conversions and of creating tensions within the local population. Police released Lima later that night, but only after threatening him with even more violence.
Lima has endured a decade of persecution in India after he left his profession as a school teacher in 2005 to devote his life totally to prayer and evangelism.
