Encouragement for Bhutan

Praise God that Pastor Tandin Wangyal has been released early from prison in Bhutan on 19 January after paying a fine.  Pastor Mon Thapa, who was arrested at the same time, as they carried a sick child to a clinic, received a lighter sentence and was released last year.  Both had been charged with holding a religious meeting and showing a film without approval as well as collecting “illegal funds.”  The Church in Buddhist-majority Bhutan was underground until 2008 but some Christians are now beginning to practise their faith openly,.  Pray for our brothers and sisters.  Pray that the release of Pastor Tandin will encourage them as they see their prayers answered (Acts 12:13-17).
