Pastor Attacked, Arrested During Worship Service

[185] prayers in [17] nations have been posted for Imprisoned pastor.

On April 10, three Muslim extremists attacked an evangelical church in a city southeast of Khartoum during a worship service, assaulting the pastor and two women in the congregation. The attackers also destroyed Bibles and church furniture. When officials responded, they arrested the pastor for disturbing the peace instead of the three men. The Christian leader was recently sentenced to a month in jail for the charges. Pray for this brother in Christ to remain firm in his faith during his imprisonment. Pray that he can share the love of Christ with those who are trying to silence his Christian witness.
