Christians were horrified to see a Pentecostal Church in Telangana state of India completely engulfed by black smoke when they arrived for worship.
On closer inspection much of the inside of the church, including furniture, the pulpit, the sound system, fans, carpets, and lights, were burned to ashes during the attack on Saturday, February 2, 2019 at about 11 AM.
The devastating attack on the church, home to 200 worshippers, has left Christians from ten villages without a place to worship.
Meanwhile, without a church building, members of the Indian Pentecostal Church held their regular Sunday worship service outside of the burned church in open land on Sunday, February 3, 2019.
