ASSEMBLY HALL DESTROYED & BURNT AT VELAYUTHAPURAM
VELAYUTHAPURAM BRETHREN ASSEMBLY, TENKASI
This is an incident that happened in Thenkasi (Tamil Nadu) on 09th July 2012. The construction of the Assembly hall there was over only recently. It took over 2 long years for the construction and almost 30 believers are worshipping there. This Assembly hall there was attacked by the Anti Gospel workers that night (Monday night) and they completely destroyed and burnt the hall. All the Bibles, song books and the gospel literature were also destroyed and burnt fully. Now they do not have any place to worship. The evangelist Mr. Vadivelu and his family are in deep distress there. His son Mr. Stephen is also one of the M.Th. students studying in Brethren Bible Institute, Pathanamthitta. Please do hold the Evangelist, his family and all the believers in your valuable prayers so that God may console them and more importantly open up doors for the construction of another Assembly hall for them to worship.
