Guerrillas Burn Bibles

[260] prayers in [17] nations have been posted for Rolo.

Guerrilla fighters burned 60 illustrated Bibles recently and banned the Bibles from their territory, according to a front-line worker in Colombia. The worker, known as Rolo, has distributed Bibles in some of Colombia’s most dangerous regions for years. When guerrilla guards first saw the illustrated Bibles, they assumed they were harmless books for kids, enabling Rolo to carry them into highly restricted areas for Christians. “Someone in leadership actually read it, though,” a VOM worker said, “and they began alerting other guerrilla groups that the books were ‘Christian propaganda.’” Pray that God’s Word will continue to make its way into the hands of Christians living under guerrilla oppression.

  • Dear Jesus. I pray that God's Word will conquer the enemies. Psalm 28:5,7 says, Since they(your enemies)show no regard for the work of the LORD and what His hands have done, He will tear them down and never build them up again. 7 The LORD is my strength and my shield; my heart trusts in Him, and I am helped." May they have Your peace and comfort.
