The Front door and windows of Mizpah Church at Rasipalayam, burned/damaged by a fanatic.

Mizpah Church– Rasipalayam
On July 28, 2010, at midnight, someone broke the windows and burned the front door. One man from the village claiming to be an eyewitness of the fire reported the matter to one of the church families staying close to the church hall. They came running, fetched water and put out the fire. Picture on the left shows the burned door and broken windows. Immediately, the matter was reported to the police and they came to the spot and arrested the fanatic who had reported the matter to our church family. Initially, he denied any knowledge of the incident, but later confessed that he had done the crime. Though we have expressed our willingness to pardon the culprit, the police department is proceeding with the issue in the legal way. Special prayer is appreciated on this matter.
