(Kyrgyzstan)–Headlining today’s news, a new draft religion law could be approved by the parliament in Kyrgyzstan. According to the Keston Institute the law would ban non-registered missionary activity. East West Ministry’s John Maisel says laws won’t stop their work. “In countries where you can register legally is to set up a legal entity. We’ve been successful in that in some of the other countries. Although they’re not as restricted or closed as some of the other countries, but with our national leaders we would try to register and operate legally.” Maisel says while there is persecution, exciting things are happening. He explains what’s going on in one area. “In this desolated area, all Muslims hostile to the Gospel initially, persecuted for their faith, but now where we started with one about three years ago, there’s over 200 and 20 different cell churches.”
