Evangelist Arrested for Public Preaching

[233] prayers in [13] nations have been posted for Juan Bautista.

A lay evangelist was arrested in the central Cuban city of Camagüey in October after police heard him preaching in public. Juan Bautista is well known to local authorities, who have repeatedly told Juan to stop his public evangelism and have also claimed he has a mental illness. But Juan has faithfully continued to share the gospel. Police prevented Juan’s pastor from attending his trial, in which the judge fined Juan the equivalent of 588 pesos (the average monthly income in Cuba is about $30). Although authorities have twice in the past burned the church Juan attends, VOM’s field leader for Cuba said they cannot destroy the church because “the true temple is the congregation that remains today.” Thank God that Juan wasn’t sent to prison. Continue to pray for him and his pastor, who remains under pressure from authorities.
