From Drug Peddler to Persecuted Pastor

[158] prayers in [17] nations have been posted for Pastor Filadelfo Perez.

Filadelfo Santos Perez trafficked drugs before he came to faith in Christ. Now a pastor, he has been persecuted many times for his Christian faith. He has been arrested for failing to participate in pagan festivals and charged heavy fines. On one occasion, he was denied food and water for three days. After constant threats, Pastor Filadelfo was driven from his village because of his witness for Christ. He now rents a small room in another town, but he feels called to continue sharing the gospel in his home village despite the opposition. Pray for opportunities for Pastor Filadelfo to share the Good News about Christ with those who are opposed to the gospel.
