Church Grateful for New Baptism Facility

[255] prayers in [13] nations have been posted for New Central Asian Believers.

In some parts of Central Asia, new Christians face persecution immediately after coming to faith in Christ. Viewed as extremists, they are issued massive fines and detained for “illegal religious gatherings.” But for many Christians, the risk of persecution is worth it. After VOM provided a swimming pool to one church for use in baptisms, the pastor sent a photo of the pool’s first use. “Thank you very much,” he wrote. “There is hardly ever a chance (and it is not safe, anyway) to administer baptism in a public place. This blessing from you is very useful for us.” Pray that believers in Central Asia will stand firm in their faith and that new believers will fully commit to Christ, even at great risk.
