Next, we turn to Saudi Arabia where we get news that thirteen Filipino Christians have been released from custody. International Christian Concern reports the group was detained for 24 days because of their Christian faith. The group was arrested because they were considered to be key leaders in two house churches. However, their ordeal is not over. The group has been given ten days to make preparations before being deported. Saudi Arabia tops Open Doors’ list of the countries most known for persecution of Christians.
