Government Enforcing Ban on Children's Religious Education

[259] prayers in [14] nations have been posted for Church Teachers of Children.

Government authorities in Tajikistan appear to be enforcing an existing law that prohibits religious instruction for children. According to Christian contacts in the country, officials from the KGB and the Committee of Religion visited several churches recently, issuing written warnings against children’s religious education. Although the law prohibiting religious education for children has existed since 2011, it has been enforced mainly on Muslims until now. These recent warnings, however, have caused concern among church leaders. Pray that those currently teaching kids about God’s love will be able to continue their important work. Pray also that church leaders will see the need for addressing the spiritual needs of children.
