Pray for Gulnora, Wife of Imprisoned Pastor

[431] prayers in [17] nations have been posted for Gulnora and Bakhrom.

While making the six-hour journey to visit her imprisoned husband, Gulnora suddenly became ill. She was taken to a local hospital, too sick to even visit her husband. After being diagnosed with high blood pressure, she was transferred to a hospital closer to her home. Gulnora’s problems with hypertension began in April 2017, after the secret police arrested her husband, Pastor Bakhrom Kholmatov. Bakhrom, 42, was arrested April 10 in a raid on the Sonmin Sonbogym (Good News of Grace) Protestant Church by secret police. They harassed and beat church members while also confiscating items from the church, including the pastor’s computer and the book More Than a Carpenter, by Josh McDowell. At his trial in July, Bakhrom was sentenced to three years in prison for possession of “extremist material.” Pray for Gulnora’s healing and also for her imprisoned husband, Bakhrom.
