Christian Couple Faces Increasing Persecution for Evangelism

[145] prayers in [12] nations have been posted for Rinat and Richa.

Rinat and Richa face increasing pressure from authorities and family members for their evangelistic work, which includes leading a secret house church, distributing Christian literature and sharing the gospel in their restricted nation. Rinat, a taxi driver, has been harassed by secret police for sharing the gospel with his passengers and has since started working in another area. Richa, who owns her own business, recently served jail time after being falsely accused by a client; she and Rinat had to sell their apartment to pay her fine. In addition, their families continue to pressure them to leave Christianity, saying their lives will return to normal when they do. Pray that truth and justice will prevail and for a quick resolution to Richa’s ongoing legal problems. Pray for the couple’s health, as they have endured high levels of stress, and pray for fruitful ministry work despite these challenges.
