Ad Feedback

Two pastors of churches in Uzbekistan were thrown in prison last week for sharing the Gospel.

The incident happened in the city of Termez and the Christians were sentenced to 15 days behind bars.

The Muslim mother of a recent convert said the two men baptized her son in "the Russian God."

Christians in the former Soviet republic are prohibited from sharing their faith.

According to the organization, Voice of the Martyrs, police in the city of Termez raided Christian homes and fined six believers more than $500 each for possessing Bibles in the Uzbek language.

The average Uzbek earns less than $250 per month.
