Join us in praying for EUROPE
From L, our partner in France:
This year there is a French law being passed that will intentionally limit freedom of religions, in an attempt to eradicate terrorism. This will significantly impact smaller churches who may not be able to handle the mountain of new paperwork required. There were amendments made to the law, but nothing significant enough.
Pray that the government will vote against the law and vote for changes that will prevent discrimination against religions. Ironically despite the challenges to religious freedoms in government, churches have been given the right to keep meeting even during lockdown, even when schools closed. Praise God! Most churches still also do a live stream of their services.
Some Gospel workers have been stuck outside the country because of COVID restrictions limiting movement but also because new visas were not being issued.
Praise God that the door is starting to open again, as lockdown restrictions start to ease in May.
