In summer 2016, Russia passed a packet of laws that more tightly restricted missionary activity and evangelism. Russian Christians fear enforcement of those laws.
American Christians are blessed to live in a country with religious freedom. We often take that freedom for granted until we’re reminded by current events that not every Christian has the same privilege. We must share the gospel freely while we are still allowed to, and pray for brothers and sisters to have the boldness to share the good news even when their government will not allow it.
