Members of the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC) killed a pastor and his oldest son recently after the pastor refused to shut down his church or allow them to recruit his oldest son and daughter.
The FARC guerrillas confronted the pastor three months ago because he had reopened a church located in a red zone. They told the pastor that if he didn’t allow them to recruit his two oldest children he would have to close his church. When he refused to do either, they immediately killed the pastor and his son.
The pastor’s wife is now left to care for the couple’s three daughters alone.

- Pray God will comfort and strengthen this widow and her daughters; pray He will be their provider and protector.
- Ask Him to strengthen their faith and draw them into a deeper relationship with Him.
- Pray these deaths will not be in vain, that the Lord may use this tragedy to somehow benefit His church in Colombia and reveal Himself to many members of FARC.
