When police carried out a raid on a state-registered church, they confiscated three New Testaments, two Bibles, and a book of children’s Bible stories. Despite the pastor proving the books were bought legally and had passed state censorship, courts have ordered that the books stay confiscated and be given to the Religious Affairs Committee in Tashkent. Church members are outraged that this implies that a church cannot even legally buy Christian literature and then keep it in its own buildings. Ask God to bless these police officers and court officials that they may have softened hearts and turn to the Lord and repent (The Bible, Matthew 4:17).
