Encourage Pastors In Colombia

Colombia is ranked at number 49 on the 2018 World Watch List. 

Because of the country’s long running war on drugs there are major issues of corruption and violence.

In 2017, the largest armed group in Colombia, the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia, were dissolved. But despite recent peace agreements, parts of Colombia have still seen a rise in violence from illegal armed groups.

In rural parts of the country, pastors are experiencing an increase in persecution. Many face the threat of kidnapping or even death.

Church leaders recently met with Open Doors to discuss the situation.

It’s our prayer that the church continues to be light in the darkness. Pray for their protection, that they can stand strong in their faith and that pastors can lead their churches with wisdom.

You can write to encourage pastors in Colombia.

Please send cards and letters by 31 July to PO Box 51236 Tawa, Wellington 5249
