COLOMBIA: Pastor's Wife Held at Gunpoint

Javier and Katherine lead a church in Buenaventura, considered to be the most dangerous city in Colombia. The couple ministers by caring for the needs of the community, which has drawn negative attention from the guerrillas who control the area. Through Javier and Katherine’s ministry, many have placed their faith in Christ and lives have been transformed, which has brought further opposition. Their lives have been threatened, and they have been forced to move several times, but they remain committed to sharing the hope of Christ. Earlier this year, Katherine was held at gunpoint by her brother-in-law, a guerrilla commander, while Javier was trapped, unable to help her. Though her brother-in-law was initially arrested, officials released him. He has threatened Katherine again, and she and her children have not been able to leave their house since his release. She and the children have also suffered significant chronic health issues.

  • Pray for Katherine's brother-in-law to become a Believer.

  • Pray for God to protect Javier, Katherine and their family, and for emotional and physical help for them.
