Pray for Jesus-followers in Russia

Two foreign citizens are the first known victims of Russia’s new amendments punishing sharing beliefs, which came into force on the 20th of July. Although they were not deported, they were fined heavily.

Forum18 reports that as of August 26, four individuals are known to have already been charged under the new provisions of the so-called “missionary law.”

Read the full report from the Forum18 News Service: “Russia: Punishments under anti-sharing beliefs law begin” by Victoria Arnold.

Please pray for believers who are pursuing the mission and message of Jesus. It appears that this new law is already being extended to punish even those not involved in evangelistic outreach.
