FEBC Listeners in Kazakhstan Face Persecution


In Kazakhstan we are asking for prayer for local Christians who listen to FEBC and are facing persecution. The Karakalpaks are an ethnic group in Kazakhstan that listen faithfully to our broadcasts in the country.

Recently, officials caught several Karakalpak Christians worshipping the Lord in a place not authorized for religious gatherings. Kazakhstan requires permits for places of worship and for people worshipping there. Because the 22 people caught were not authorized to be worshipping, they are being fined $10,000, a huge cost for these people of humble means.

Please pray for peace and freedom of worship for these people and that the charges would be dropped.
