Family Eagerly Awaits Bakhrom Kholmatov's Release

[210] prayers in [14] nations have been posted for The Kholmatov Family.

The family of imprisoned pastor Bakhrom Kholmatov is looking forward to his scheduled April 2020 release. The past two years have been difficult, as his wife has experienced various stress-related health problems, but Gulnora and the children say they feel they are now on the downward slope of a difficult season. Bakhrom was arrested on April 10, 2017, in a raid by secret police on the Sonmin Sonbogym (Good News of Grace) Protestant Church. He was sentenced to three years in prison for possessing “extremist material,” such as Josh McDowell’s book More Than a Carpenter. Continue to pray for the family’s strength as they await his release.
