With all that is happening around the world, it is no surprise Christian Persecution and violence has only increased over the past several months. Radicals use the pandemic and riots as an excuse to starve, attack and kill Christians due to their beliefs.

In early June, one such victim of religious persecution was a 16-year-old Christian boy from India. on June 5th, Sambaru Madkami was found stabbed and stoned to death because of his Christian faith.

Sambaru was known throughout his village for leading daily house church meetings while his Pastor was in hiding due to villagers’ growing opposition and anger towards those who followed the Lord.

While his father was away, multiple villagers, instigated by Hindu extremists, kidnapped Sambaru from his house and, “took him a few meters further, where a huge mob was waiting for him. They tied his hands and started to beat him”, stated an eyewitness.

The mob then stabbed Sambaru multiple times, destroyed his face with a stone and slit his neck.

It is heartbreaking that any persona, let alone a young teenager, should endure such wickedness. It is even more heartbreaking knowing that the young boy endured such pain and horror for doing something we do freely every single day, loving the Lord.

This evil is what Save the Persecuted Christians is fighting against. Every dollar given to this organization goes towards helping bring light to the oppression towards people like Sambaru. As a nonprofit, much of the good we are able to do is attributed to the generosity of people such as yourself. We cannot fight religious persecution and anti-Christian violence on our own, we need the support of our brothers and sisters in Christ to help pave the way. $5, $50 or $500 goes farther than you would think.

If you are able to contribute to our work promoting stories of persecuted men, women and children all over the world, please donate today. Prayerfully consider making a small monthly contribution, $30 or less, to help sustain the SaveUs Movement for the long run.

Please pray for Sambaru’s family as they grieve the loss of such an incredible young man and join us in continuing to pray for all those around the world facing daily persecution.

Thank you for your support and prayers, they mean more than you know!

Sincerely, your sister in Christ,
