Luke 18:7

Bernard, a very mission-minded pastor in Zanzibar (Tanzania), who had been receiving threats, died in a motorbike “accident” earlier this year. Local Christians are doubtful if this is what really happened, because of the abnormal severity of the injuries to his head. But they have not raised their doubts with the authorities, and are leaving the matter in the hands of the Lord. Christians in Zanzibar are a tiny and vulnerable minority in a strongly Islamic context. Pray that God will bring about justice for His chosen ones in Zanzibar (Luke 18:7), who have no one else to defend them.
