Lift up in prayer “Iskandar”, a pastor in Central Asia who was tortured by the police for owning a Bible. Just before he was due to leave to take part in a Barnabas-funded Bible seminar, Iskandar was arrested and held at the police station for three days. After beating him, the police tried to pressure him to reject Christ and write false accusations against other church leaders. When he refused, they undressed him and exposed him to minus 25C temperatures outside. Upon release. Iskandar’s family was slandered on television, the community turned against them and Iskandar lost his job. Barnabas fund has helped with his medical expenses.
