"Red Zone" Pastors Out of Contact

[149] prayers in [9] nations have been posted for Christian Brothers and Sisters.

A front-line worker in Colombia reported that he has lost contact with several pastors in the Sucre area in recent months. The state of Sucre is one of Colombia’s “red zones,” where Marxist guerrillas and paramilitaries exercise violent control over large areas. These groups have recently imposed new restrictions against Christians and churches. Pray for the safety of the pastors there. Pray also that front-line workers would be wise in knowing how to support Christian brothers and sisters who live under the threat of these violent groups.
