Russia's New Law

(Gertrude) #1

I would really appreciate if we can have a conversation about a new law in Russia. The new amendments, incl laws against sharing faith in homes, online, or anywhere but recognized church buildings. No evangelizing outside of Church and what it means for the people & Christianity in this country. Eagerly awaiting to hear your views. Thanks.

In terms of discussing it, can you share with us what would be most helpful? Are you living in Russia? Supporting missionaries who are?

Hey, not living there. I’m just thinking of persecution of the church globally and how it its taking shape with ease and quite rapid. Also how easy it go unnoticed and ways we can assist the parts of the body that is suffering…
