Pray for Pastor David, Under Threat in Zanzibar

[215] prayers in [13] nations have been posted for Pastor David.

Less than 18 months ago, a group of local Muslims tried to burn down Pastor David’s house in broad daylight, while only his wife and children were at home. The attackers doused the back of the house with gasoline before tossing a match through the window. Thankfully, David’s family escaped unharmed, but the home and everything inside were destroyed. Local Muslims later told David that the men intended to kill his child and force his family to leave the island. The arsonists were never charged. Attacks and threats like this are not uncommon in Zanzibar, where 99 percent of the population is Muslim. The government of Zanzibar appears to pursue a strategy of removing all Christians and churches from the island. Thank God for pastors serving in Zanzibar who take a bold stand for Christ in the face of intense persecution and direct government opposition. Pray for the protection of their families and congregations.
