The Kazakhstan National Security Committee (KNB), a secret police, have encouraged a former member of New Life Church in the region of Pavlodar, Kazakhstan to file a suit, claiming back pay and compensation for moral damages and for volunteer work in a rehabilitation centre for thirteen years.
This is not the first time the secret police of Kazakhstan have targeted the evangelical community. There have been prison sentences for sharing the gospel, accusations of “bringing severe psychological damage to a person through prayer and communion,” and torture in detention facilities for serving as a church leader. This time the secret police are trying to shut down the church completely and confiscate its property.
Your help is essential.
Please give now to help New Life Church withstand this attack before it’s too late.
