Turkmenistan turns the screws

Officials in Turkmenistan, a Central Asian country told a Christian worker that all religions other than Sunni Islam are now forbidden.

When he met with about twenty other believers in January, the police arrested the entire group, and all were abused and insulted. A Muslim leader brought charges against them, and heavy fines were given.

Two children who were present were later humiliated in front of their entire schools.

Ask God to comfort the believers and provide them with the means to pray their fines.
