Here's a little of what is inside this bulletin:
A pastor and his wife were attacked in Deniyaya on Aug. 9 after visiting a female church member. They were returning home on their motorcycle when a vehicle suddenly cut them off, causing the pastor's wife to be thrown to the ground. They were then attacked by a mob of about 40 men, including five Buddhist monks and a government official, shouting, "Attack them! Kill them!"
The mob forced the pastor and his wife to return to the home of the woman they had just visited, and they asked the woman and her daughter how much they were paid to convert to Christianity. The woman and her daughter denied being paid and told them it was their decision based on personal conviction.
The pastor was repeatedly beaten, but he and his wife were able to escape. Although injured, he refused to go to the hospital for fear the attackers would find him and inflict further injuries.
