Pray for Pastor Mario Felix Lleonart Barroso, Arrested during Obama's Cuba Visit

[691] prayers in [30] nations have been posted for Pastor Lleonart Barroso.

While President Obama was watching baseball in Cuba, Pastor Mario Felix Lleonart Barroso was sitting in a police station. Barroso, a Baptist pastor, blogger and friend of VOM, was thrown to the ground, handcuffed and detained at his home (which also serves as his church) just hours before Air Force One landed in Havana. The Cuban government decided to make sure there would be no “distractions” during President Obama’s visit, so Barroso and dozens of other dissidents were detained by police in the days leading up to the president’s arrival. A few hours after the president left Cuba, Pastor Barroso was set free and returned to his family. He was tired and weak, having fasted throughout his detention, but happy to be home. Please pray for Pastor Barroso and his wife, Yoaxis, as the pastor recovers from his recent detention.
