Pray for three church leaders in Belarus, who have been charged with holding an “unauthorised mass public event” following a police raid on their house-church gathering. Ten police officers broke into the home of Andrei Tupalsky in Gomel; after taking pictures and filming the meeting, they demanded that it be stopped. They recorded the personal details of those present and charged Andrei, the pastor and the preacher, whose Bible was confiscated. This was the second raid on the church in the space of nine months. In Belarus, all religious organisations must register with the state, but some churches refuse to do so because they do not want to be subject to state interference. Pray that the Lord will uphold our brothers as they suffer disgrace for the sake of His Name (Acts 5:41).
