Pray for Kazakhstan - facebook page

When the New Life Protestant Church in the East Kazakhstan Region sought to be re-registered under a new name, its founders began to experience increased harassment from authorities. In one case, police came to various homes late at night, threatening the residents to get them to open the door. It is thought authorities are trying these tactics to get applicants to withdraw from the process.

Pray that this church, and others like it, will stand firm in the face of opposition, and that God will open the doors for them to receive their official registration (The Bible, Ephesians 6:14).
