(Russia)–And finally, Christians are being asked to pray for a church in Russia that was destroyed in violence against evangelical believers. East West Ministries reports the Grace of Christ Church in Chekhov burned down last month destroying all of the church’s property. Police believe arson was the cause, reportedly brought on by the majority religion in that area. East West Ministries says it will take up to 20-thousand dollars to replace the church building, which was actually the home of the pastor’s mother.
