The Senate recently approved wide-ranging amendments to Kazakhstan's Religion Law. The amendments include more restrictions on parents' and children's freedom to attend worship meetings and teach beliefs; more restrictions on and punishments for religious teaching without state permission and more restrictions on sharing beliefs. Muslim, Russian Orthodox and Catholic leaders have all described the new laws as extremely harsh. Pray that the Church will have wisdom to know how to respond (The Bible, Psalm 56:3-4).
