Pastor's Children Left Stateless

[213] prayers in [10] nations have been posted for Pastor Abhaya and family.

Christians in Bhutan often risk losing their citizenship or other rights because of their faith in Christ. Pastor Abhaya and his wife have been denied a marriage certificate by the government, which jeopardizes their whole family, especially their children, who have been denied citizenship. The family may have to relocate to another country for the sake of their children. Pray for this family as they make decisions related to their future and the church Pastor Abhaya leads. Pray that Christian families in Bhutan will be able to meet the needs of their families despite this kind of pressure.
