Pastor Wrongfully Imprisoned

[144] prayers in [10] nations have been posted for Pastor Moussa Bagwari.

Front-line workers report that Pastor Moussa Bagwari was “falsely accused and imprisoned in what seems to be an effort to destroy his reputation and Christian influence.” Due to his imprisonment, his wife, Lariya, and their four children were left without any financial support and were forced to return to Pastor Moussa’s home village. His extended family should have cared for them, according to cultural norms. But Pastor Moussa’s family are all Muslims and would not allow Lariya or her children to live with them. VOM has since provided her with housing and vocational training so she can provide for her children. Despite the pressure, Lariya is strong in her faith and serves as a worship leader in her church. She asks that Christians pray for her husband to be released and for her to be strengthened as she cares for their family without him.
