Persecution Is Lifting: Impact East Timor

impact the community

Oecusse is the only place in East Timor where our church remains closed due to the persecution faced shortly after the inauguration in 2011.

Recently, one of the most vocal leaders of the persecution invited the local pastor to his house to ask for forgiveness for his behaviour against our church. The pastor also prayed for the man’s healing from a chronic illness. This is how disciples of Jesus must act!

The closure of our church building is now before the courts. Recently, we met a Christian attorney who generously offered to help us with our court case. Thank God, with this precious help the case is progressing well. We are sure that soon our church will reopen.

Please pray with us for our persecutor’s healing and salvation, and that our church will reopen soon!
