Pray for Yuri Pak, Imprisoned on False Charges

[269] prayers in [23] nations have been posted for Yuri Pak.

A local church leader and teacher in Kazakhstan was sentenced to two years in prison on Oct. 3, 2016, after being convicted of making a false emergency-services call. On April 14, 2015, someone using Yuri Pak’s cellphone made a prank phone call to Kazakhstan’s emergency services, similar to calling 911 in the United States. The evidence used against Yuri Pak is a two-minute recording of a drunken man making a bomb threat and using prison jargon. Expert witnesses testified that the caller’s voice does not match Yuri Pak’s voice. Additionally, the caller references spending 10 years in prison and being angry at police, but Yuri Pak has never been in prison. The government in this majority Muslim country appears to be using these false charges to persecute him because of his role in the Christian church. Pray for justice and that God will use Yuri Pak as a shining light for Christ while he is in prison.
