A mass religious gathering taking place February 9-13 has some Christians living with apprehension. Anti-Christian radical groups have plotted to target Christians and demolish their churches during their own religious festival.
The believers and pastors struggle with mixed emotions over the intended plans. Some fear they will be harassed, beaten and maybe killed, while others have gathered courage in the Lord to continue sharing the Good News and love of Christ with the people.
Much prayer is needed. The believers ask people to pray for their safety and that they will stand firm in the Lord and His promises. Pray also that the religious gathering will not affect Gospel for Asia-supported ministries, but the missionaries will be a strong witness for Christ and reach many who are lost.
