Government Prohibits Church from Meeting

[232] prayers in [18] nations have been posted for Amparo Gallo and congregation.

A house church of 1,000 members has been banned from gathering for services by the Cuban government. In recent weeks, the government announced that churches in Cuba could begin meeting again in person on Sunday, Oct. 10. On Oct. 8, however, Amparo Gallo’s house church in Santa Clara received word from the government that it would not be allowed to meet for in-person services. Pray for God's wisdom for these brothers and sisters as they determine how to honor God amid the Cuban government's restrictions, and pray that the government will lift the restrictions.
