Brother Loses ID and Work, Keeps Gospel Focus

[149] prayers in [10] nations have been posted for Brother Karna.

Because Brother Karna is a Christian, the government of Bhutan refuses to issue him a citizenship ID, without which he is unable to find a job. He reported that authorities often confiscate the crops of Christians who do not have IDs, knowing that these Christians do not have a legal way to protest this treatment. Even though Karna has struggled to earn a living under this system, he remains a faithful witness as an evangelist and prays more for the salvation of Bhutan than for his own needs. Please join him in his prayer for the Bhutanese people. Pray also that the government issues the needed papers to Karna and other believers in Christ who have been deprived of their citizenship because of their Christian faith.
