Colombia has a long history of organised crime and corruption. An increase in new armed groups and the growth of illegal crops has kept the level of violence high. Various criminal groups take possession of villages and place difficult restrictions on churches. Christian leaders have been abducted and some murdered as intolerance toward Christianity has increased.
Pray: That Christians will remain strong and steadfast in Christ when pressured to compromise their faith.
