Police raided the home of a local citizen and found a New Testament, which she had been given as a gift from a local Christian Believer. The Bible was confiscated and later destroyed and the Christian was taken to court and fined about two weeks’ worth of wages. She was told that using a New Testament for missionary purposes was illegal. It is possible that as she had been sharing her faith, someone made a complaint to the police. Pray that this might not discourage the faith and boldness of the Believers in this town (The Bible, Galatians 6:9).
