Baptist pastor beaten to death in St. Petersburg, Russia

In St. Petersburg, Russia, friends and family are mourning the loss of Pastor Yuri Golovin after he was beaten to death, reports MNN.

Slavic Gospel Association and the Russian Union of Evangelical Christians-Baptists (UECB) reported that 76-year-old Golovin was on his way to pay a visit to an elderly church member when unknown assailants attacked the Central Baptist Church pastor outside the home.

After the attack, Golovin was able to get the attention of the church member, who called an ambulance. However, Golovin later died at the hospital from his injuries.

While no motives have been confirmed, the International Christian Newspaper reported assailants may have been local drug addicts.

As Golovin's community mourns, pray that God will comfort them in their grief. Pray that those responsible for this assault will be brought to justice, and ask God to work through this tragedy to lead many unreached people to His Gospel.
