The government of Rwanda has closed 6,315 churches and mosques from February through April, 2018. They have mostly targeted Christian congregations, justifying it as building code violations and noise pollution. How difficult it must be for the Christians there to apply Jesus’ teaching to “love your enemies, and pray for those who persecute you” (Matthew 5:44)! Pray for these brothers and sisters.
