Pray for Tajikistan - facebook page

For the third time this year a large number of prisoners were killed in Tajikistan. The first incident was a prison riot in the Khujand penitentiary, which claimed 21 lives. The second was a disturbance at Vakhdat prison which resulted in 32 deaths. And most recently 13 prisoners were poisoned on route from a prison in the north to one in Dushanbe. A United Nations Working Group on Enforced or Involuntary Disappearances concluded that prison facilities in Tajikistan were “in a grievous state.” Pray for opportunities for prisoners to hear about the love and saving power of Jesus Christ (The Bible, Psalm 68:5-6).
