Kazakh Christian Blocked from NRB Conference
ICC Note:
When a well-known Pastor in Kazakhstan attempted to board a plane to the US with his wife to attend a religious conference, government agents intervened and threw them into detention, which is just “another example of growing government restrictions against religious freedom.”

Bishop Maxim Maximov, head of Kazakhstan’s New Life churches and founder of Russian language CNL-TV, will miss this year’s event.
