Orphanage in Nepal under Attack
I just saw this post, and it about broke my heart. Some friends of mine were just in Nepal a year ago for a missions trip to an orphanage there to help with some much needed work and what not. What kind of sick people would attack orphans? What in the world would possess these wicked men to think that this orphanage would have money to pay them off? Or do they know that they don't and are using this demand as a way to justify an attack on children to themselves? And why aren't the police doing their jobs?
NEPAL: Gang Demands Money to Call Off Lethal Attack on Christian Orphanage
Join me in praying for the nation of Nepal this week. There are many Christians in Nepal who are under the persecution of militant Hindus. The following is from VOM Media sources.
After facing much persecution at the hands of militant Hindus for some time, a Christian orphanage located in south central Nepal has recently been mercilessly targeted by the Jota Lal Sahena gang, a group of local armed radicals.
Information acquired by The Voice of the Martyrs indicates the band of outlaws warned the orphanage staff it must pay an enormous bribe.
The ultimatum persists despite the orphanage workers pleading to the gang that they lack sufficient funds to pay the bribe.
Refusing to respond to this illegal activity or bring the outlaws to justice, Nepali police remain steadfast in their decision to offer the orphanage no protection.
