Most of you know that I have a daughter and son-in-law who are serving the Lord in a foreign country. This country does not allow the preaching of the Gospel. Below you will find a letter from my son-in-law outlining what happened to them Sunday morning. Of course, I have omitted some names and other data to protect their security. I would sure appreciate your prayers for them.

Have a great day!

I would like to fill you in as to what took place last Sunday Morning. We arrived at church around 9:00 a.m. Immediately following Choir; a single police officer came into the meeting. He was very rude and demanded to talk to whoever was in charge. The woman who answered the door went to Brother _____ and took him to the police officer. At this time no one knew if a police force was waiting outside the door or not, in fact the police officer alluded to the fact that there was. After Brother ________ talked to him the police officer calmed down considerably. He then asked for all the foreignersí information and Passport information (which is usually the first step they take to a house church raid). My information as well as Brother ______ was taken and he left saying that we would be arrested if we ever met there again. We did not have institute that evening and simply waited to be picked up. Usually if a force is not sent into the meeting the police officer will threaten in order to get some money out of the deal. We have now waited for three days and have heard nothing. This is not to say that tomorrow he could change his mind and arrest us, but it does seem unlikely. In fact today one of the members of the Church had lunch with the officer, and he commented that we had made a friend and we could continue to meet in the same location. This is very odd, and a bit confusing, however considering he knows where we live as well as all our visa and passport information we must comply. If we move, he will issue an arrest, if we stay we must cope with the fact that he may attempt to turn us in at his convenience. At this point it seems the Lord has granted us favor in the eyes of our enemies. Please continue to pray that we would be able to meet with no trouble. I certainly thank every one of you for your prayers and thoughts. I hesitated to call people with this information for fear of alarming people. However this kind of information is hard to mention without it being alarming. Just know that we trust the Lord completely and know that he can keep us here if it will glorify him. We love all of you and are thankful for you.

Thanks for sharing. I pray for the Lord to put a hedge of protection around them. May God grant them wisdom.

Mark, I'm sorry I didn't find this thread earlier!

What a situation, like the Sword of Damocles over their heads all the time...
May your Lord bless and shelter them; they and you will be in my thoughts and prayers.

Thanks for asking. Joe, and thank to everyone for praying. So far, so good. They have stopped having choir as it makes too much noise and attracts attention. They are not having Bible Institute classes for the time being. The police officer that came into their church has told them they can continue to meet there. This is unheard of, but the Lord seems to be working!

The people of the church spread out their times of coming and going a bit more so as not to attract attention. Of course, this could all change in a day, but things are staying pretty calm and steady for right now. I will continue to keep everyone posted!

Lord bless!

Good to hear things are going well. Are they in contact with Voice of the Martyrs. Good organization that may be able to lend assistance.

Thanks, Robert. They are familiar with VOM (great group!). Right now, thye are just trying to maintain a low profile. Their language studies are going well and the other missionary they are working with is still looking for another potential meeting place.

I will continue to keep everyone updated. Thanks, everybody!

Thanks Mark for keeping us posted. We are definitely praying for the situation. I'm glad to see y'all are familiar with VOM. At my church we are having our annual Reformed Bible Institute conference the first weekend of Nov. - this year we are having some speakers from VOM to speak about their work, etc.
We are looking forward to hearing them.
