Praise God for Release of Pastor Pedro Vazquez

[312] prayers in [24] nations have been posted for Pastor Pedro Vazquez.

On March 29, Pastor Pedro Vazquez was abducted from his village for several days in Chiapas, Mexico, by a violent group known as Chinchulines. Pastor Vazquez was held in a nearby village and his family members and church congregation were very concerned that he would be killed. Pastor Vazquez works in an area where pastors and Christian workers have been threatened with death and evangelicals are often expelled from their communities, losing land, homes and crops. Praise God for the pastor’s release. Continue to pray for this church as well as others as they continue to share God’s Word in an area that is hostile to the gospel.
