Children Interrogated By Secret Police

Written by Rev. H.A Bergsma
On March 26, the Persecution and Prayer Alert newsletter reported that officers of the National Security Committee (NSC) raided an unregistered Baptist church in Balkanabad in western Turkmenistan on March 16, even though Turkmenistan does not specifically forbid unregistered religious meetings. We have since received a report from Forum 18 News Service that children from this church have been taken from their school classes and interrogated about "internal church life and their Christian education in their families." According to a statement from the church, officers have banned the children from attending church services and threatened some of the older children with prison.

Pray for these children, that they will stand firm for Christ in the face of opposition and threats. (From The Voice of the Martyrs) The organization ÒCome Over And HelpÓ is actively involved in such areas and warrants our generous support.
