Bring freedom to the Kogui Christians in Colombia
The imprisonment of native Columbians for their Christian faith continues for tribal area
11/30/09 Columbia (CSW)–More Christians have been taken prisoner by the Kogui governor, as the situation in Colombia worsens. Last week the governor ordered the wives and children of current prisoners to meet the authorities. When they arrived they too were taken prisoner, and are being pressurised to give up their faith. There are now 23 prisoners, including eight children, and two babies who are dangerously ill.
It’s vital that we act now to pressure the Colombian Government to take action. As the governor threatens to round up the remaining Christians (120 in total) and hold them indefinitely, the current prisoners are being subjected to hard labour and are physically and emotionally exhausted. They urgently need our prayers.
