Police Interrogate 8-Year-Old Christian Boy in Ongoing Harassment

[272] prayers in [17] nations have been posted for Nicolay Pivtev's Son.

Local officials in Navoi, Uzbekistan, took an 8-year-old boy out of school without his parents’ knowledge in order to interrogate him about his family’s church attendance. Two days after raiding Nikolay Pivtsev’s home, confiscating the family’s Bible and computer, police picked up his son from school on Jan. 26 and took him in for questioning. Later, they summoned both the boy and his mother to a meeting in which they threatened fines and imprisonment if Nikolay continued to attend church. Then, a month later, a judge fined the family double the monthly wage. Other Christians in Navoi and elsewhere in Uzbekistan have experienced similar harassment in the last few months. Pray that parents will continue to teach their children about Christ.
