Pray for Court Hearing for Brazilian Missionary

Apr. 10, 2014 | Senegal

Pastor Jose Dilson da Silva, a Brazilian missionary who has worked in West Africa for 23 years, faces a court hearing on April 8 in connection with the Christian conversion of a Muslim leader’s son at a home for street children. The pastor spent five months in a Senegalese prison but was temporarily released pending final resolution of his case. While in prison, Pastor da Silva was able to distribute 350 Bibles and witness to many fellow prisoners. He and his family have asked us to pray that they will not be fearful but will “give good testimony of our faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.”
