Believers gather to pray outside New Life Church building they were evicted from
Believers gathered for prayers near Minsk’s New Life Church on February 21. This is reported by a correspondent of belsat.eu.
Several hundred believers responded to Pastor Vyachaslau Hancharenka‘s call to come to Sunday prayers.
“Kicking a believer out of a shrine is the same as kicking a man out of his apartment. It’s the same as kicking a soul out of a body. There is no difference. We all felt as if our souls had been ripped out. It was as if some emptiness had formed from the injustice we were facing,” stressed the pastor.
On 17 February law enforcers evicted the protestant church “New Life” in the Sukharava neighborhood of Minsk.
The head of the People’s anti-crisis department Pavel Latushka expressed his “support to the Christian Protestant church, whose believers bravely continue fighting for their right to do good”.
