  • Religion Law amendments proposed in Armenia
    Armenian parliament

    On February 5, proposed amendments to Armenia's Religion Law and Criminal Code began passage through the nation's parliament, according to a February 9 report from Forum 18. Under the amendments, leaders of religious communities involved in evangelism could face up to two years in prison. Those caught evangelizing could be imprisoned for up to one year or fined 500 times the minimum monthly wage. The amendments propose a five-fold increase in the number of members required to register as a religious organization.

    Pray that these amendments will not be approved. Ask God to work in the lives of Armenia's leaders so that they too will turn to Him.
