Government officials are responsible for most of the persecution in Tajikistan. They raid church meetings, detain Christians and confiscate religious materials. Apart from state-controlled institutions, no religious activities are permitted. Registered groups have some freedom, but gaining registration is extremely difficult. It’s not illegal to convert to Christianity but new believers can be beaten by their families and pressured to deny Jesus.
Pray: That believers in Tajikistan will find ways, despite various oppositions, to share the Gospel.
