Pray for the Persecuted Church: TANZANIA
A pastor and several church members in a southeastern Tanzanian village had all of their belongings and cash confiscated after they refused to contribute to a ceremony involving witchcraft. Village leaders had called witch doctors to remove “curses” on their village, and everyone in the community was required to make a donation for the ceremony. Because the ceremony involved witchcraft, the Christians refused to contribute. Angered by the Christians’ refusal, village leaders forced their way into the pastor’s house and took his possessions. They later did the same to other church members, even taking a large amount of cash from a young man who had saved the money to pay for his wedding. When the Christians turned to police for help, the police called them “idiots and ignorant fools.” Village leaders then threatened the pastor and told him they intended to destroy the church and get rid of all Christians in the village. Pray that these believers will not be intimidated and that their possessions will be returned.

Please join us in prayer for the next pastor of GBC, and that God will be preparing the person that we need. Pray as well for the search committee, and that we will be sensitive to God’s leading.

Moises and Carolyn Ruiz, Mexico. Praise God for quality time with family and supporters while on home assignment. Praise God for the leadership of the Chapples and Englishes, as Moises and Carolyn are in Canada. Moises and Carolyn will remain in Canada until May 2018 to be alongside their son Dylan who is finishing high school. Pray for the Ruiz's and the Evangelical Missionary Church of Canada's ministry in Mexico in the midst of this change. Pray for the teaching groups that Moises has been leading in Mexico.
