Christians in Tajikistan run various summer camps for the children. A week ago, police discovered an illegal Christian camp. In their search, they found out that one of the Tajik girls had a Children’s Bible with pictures. Administrative proceedings were instituted and the workers of the camp could be
fined $500 – $700. Pray for the believers who ran the camp and for the disappointed children who lost the opportunity to spend time at this Christian camp. Pray for God’s protection over these camps in Tajikistan and other Central Asian nations.
“Let the children come to me; do not hinder them, for to such belongs the kingdom of God.” Mark 10:14
Father, thank You for the perseverance of these believers to spread the Good News of Christ to those around them even in the face of danger. Thank You for the children who have heard Your Word, even if for a brief time. We pray that You will take the seed of the Word planted and cause it to grow and flourish in their lives. For the leaders and the workers of this camp, we pray for mercy in the court system and the resources to pay any fines that may be levied against them. And for the other Christian camps in the nation, we pray Your protection that the seed of the gospel might be planted and take deep root in the nation of Tajikistan and beyond in Central Asia. In the name of Jesus who called the children to come to Him. Amen.
