( - A Christian's home was raided in Agdash, Azerbaijan on March 25 by the local official of the State Committee for Work with Religious Organizations, police officers and two cameramen.

Twelve children were gathered at Vera Zhuchaeva's home, with their parents' permission, to listen to Bible stories when authorities entered. They forced the children into one room, questioned them, and recorded their names. The children were then released to their parents.

Police also confiscated 508 books and 40 films from the house. Three believers who were visiting from the capital city of Baku were taken to a police station and questioned for four hours. When they went to the station the next day to pick up their identification documents, they were fined for "illegally spreading Christianity and other faiths."

Pray that Christian parents will demonstrate an unwavering commitment to Christ and continue to teach their children about the Lord (Deuteronomy 11:18-20, 2 Timothy 1:5). Pray that religious freedom will be respected in Azerbaijan.
