Government Restricts Bible Imports as Need Grows

[250] prayers in [18] nations have been posted for Christians Needing Bibles.

As the government tightens its control of religious life in Cuba, Christians there expect it to become more difficult to get Bibles into the country. And the need for Bibles continues to increase as more people come to Christ through the faithful witness of the local church. Over the years, believers have gotten Bibles into Cuba by boat, by individual hand delivery and by government-approved shipments. This year, however, the government has stopped one of the ways Bibles were being imported, so fewer Bibles will be available. Please pray for new, creative ways of getting Bibles to Cuban Christians, and pray for all believers there as they face tightening government restrictions.
