Today I met an evangelist from one of the Lutheran churches in another community (evangelist here is like a pastor in training who is leading a congregation as a lay leader.) He is basically living in hiding now because there are death threats on his life. He ran for political office in his community so that he could make a bigger impact. The government officials in power had him beat up and put in jail for 7 days. He had to leave that community for fear of
his life and is now biding his time on the opposite side of town. If he goes to another neighborhood, he has to call ahead to friends there to make sure that it is safe. His vision is to return to his community to help with the ministry, but he knows it will be a long time. I can't even imagine how life is in this city as the church. Everything is fine until you stand in the way of those in power and their money. Please pray for him.
