China–Missionary Couple Ordered to Leave
Source: VOM Contacts

Psalm 119:104-106

from China’s Public Security Bureau (PSB) asked a missionary couple to
leave the country after they were caught attending a house-church
service on Aug. 31. At the beginning of the meeting, several PSB
officers walked to the front and announced, “We know there are some
foreigners in the church tonight, and it is illegal for any foreigner to
do any religious activities in the Chinese church.” They ordered
everyone to leave the building and detained the missionary couple, who
are ethnic Chinese but hold U.S. passports. They had served in China for
seven years, and officials ordered them to leave within 10 days. “They
did great mission work in China teaching the Bible and training
disciples,” a VOM contact wrote. “They don’t know what to do next.” Pray
for this couple as well as the church they are leaving behind.

Sri Lanka–Pastor and Wife Assaulted by Mob
Source: VOM Contacts, World Evangelical Alliance

Psalm 31:14-16

pastor and his wife were attacked recently in Deniyaya, Sri Lanka,
while returning from a church member’s home. A mob of about 40 men,
along with five Buddhist monks and a local government authority,
approached the pastor and his wife, shouting, “Attack them … kill
them!” The pastor was assaulted and accused of spreading Christianity in
the area. He and his wife were then dragged to the home of the woman
they had just visited, where the mob shouted at the woman and demanded
to know how much she was paid to convert to Christianity. She replied
that she had become a Christian based on conviction and was not paid to
do so. The pastor was beaten again, but he and his wife managed to
escape. He suffered injuries to his legs and body. Pray that the
pastor’s attackers will find Christ, and pray for the healing and
restoration of the pastor and his wife.

Jordan–Missionary Murdered in Irbid
Sources: International Mission Board of the Southern Baptist Convention, VOM Contacts

Isaiah 61:2–4

veteran school teacher was stabbed to death recently in Irbid, Jordan,
in what police are calling a crime motivated by robbery. Police arrested
a young Jordanian man in connection with the murder of 55-year-old
Cheryll Harvey, of Sudan, Texas, who had taught English in Jordan for 24
years. Although authorities claim the motive was robbery, nothing was
taken from the apartment where she was murdered. Cheryll founded an
English-language center in Irbid 10 years ago that served 300 to 400
college students each semester. She was known as someone dedicated to
her work, to her students and to living out the love of Jesus to her
Jordanian friends. She is survived by two brothers. A statement from
Southern Baptist officials said, “We pray her witness continues to bear
much fruit.” Pray for her family and her friends in Jordan as they
grieve her loss, and thank God for Cheryll’s life of service.
