Christians urged to pray and encourage

By September 12, 2005

Bangladesh (MNN) — Open Doors, an international Christian ministry is launching a prayer and writing campaign for the families of two workers of Christian Life Bangladesh, who were killed on July 27.

For the last eight months, Tapan Kumar Roy, 27, and Liplal Mardi, 21, had been actively involved in community village work and often showed the “Jesus” film at the invitation of local villagers. The two reportedly had been verbally threatened by an Islamic official and some villagers for showing the film.

“The families of these murdered Christians need our prayers and letters of support,” said Open Doors USA President Carl Moeller. “Freedom of religion in Bangladesh is being eroded by Islamic fundamentalists. We need to stand up for our Christian brothers and sisters there.”
