"Olha agora para os céus, e conta as estrelas, se as podes contar. E disse-lhe: Assim será a tua descendência..."

Persecution in Uzbekistan

Pray for the persecuted!

The strict monitoring of all Christian activities has intensified, even in the Orthodox Church. Outreach, training and youth activities are forbidden in unregistered churches – and in the last ten years only one new church was granted registration. Private Bible study meetings are always in danger of being closed down. Churches are raided and literature and other materials confiscated. Printing or importing Christian literature is prohibited. Christians are fined or given short-term prison sentences. When brought to court, fair treatment is not ensured.

Pray:

For pastors trying to lead their churches with limited resources

For courage for Muslim-background believers who experience great pressure from family and society

A 27-year-old convert from Islam is currently serving 10 years in prison on false charges. Pray for his release.
