Pastor Takes a Beating, Remains Joyful

Gospel for Asia
For Immediate Release

Kavi is one of many who have experienced hardships for Christ’s sake. This pastor endured the brutal anti-Christian attacks that took place in Orissa, India, in 2008.

SOUTH ASIA (ANS) -- Gospel for Asia-supported pastor Kavi Das, who serves in a volatile region in South Asia, endured a harsh beating while sharing the love of Christ with his neighbors. The unprovoked attack came without warning from a man Kavi was speaking to.

Kavi is doing well and is on the mend. The local GFA leader visited the pastor to encourage him in his ministry.

Kavi isn’t new to persecution. He has faced threats for showing films about Jesus, also, along with actively proclaiming the saving grace of God.  

“For the sake of the Gospel, he has gone through a lot of opposition and scary situations in his life,” said a GFA field correspondent.

Even with all the persecution, Kavi remains joyful as he thinks about the way the Lord will continue to grow his ministry in the coming days.

Please keep Kavi—and all the other national missionaries facing inevitable persecution—in your prayers.


Believers face persecution in all forms, even after death.

A group of Bible college students were attacked by a mob out for blood.

Gospel for Asia is an evangelical mission organization based in Carrollton, Texas, involved in sharing the love of Jesus across South Asia.
