"They Will Kill You"

[182] prayers in [15] nations have been posted for Pastor Threatened by Taliban.

Religious affairs authorities told a pastor working in Central Asia that if the Taliban take over, they will kill the pastor. Though church meetings are restricted in the country, this pastor has hosted an enduring house fellowship in his home. He has also been bold in his approach to the government, attempting to register his congregation for a long time. He said one reason the government does not want to register the church is because it may cause problems with the Muslims in his community. He also said some government members are devout Muslims who oppose Christianity. When authorities told him he would be killed, the pastor replied that he expected persecution because Jesus warned His followers about it two thousand years ago. Pray that this pastor and his congregation stand firm in their faith, and pray for favor from the authorities.
