( - Pastor Omar Gude Perez, a Cuban pastor who was sentenced to six years in prison on false accusations of illicit economic activity, falsification of documents and human trafficking in 2009, has been denied the right to appeal by the Supreme Tribunal in Havana.

Pastor Omar's wife stated that the court's decision confirmed her belief that his arrest and imprisonment was orchestrated at the highest levels of government.

Pastor Mario Alvarez, another Cuban pastor who has been under intense pressure from authorities in recent years (see, has appealed to the Supreme Tribunal to prevent what he believes is the illegal confiscation of his home.

Pray that the Church in Cuba will continue to reach out with the news of God's grace, despite the opposition from the government. You can show your support for believers facing opposition in Cuba by posting a prayer on our Persecuted Church Prayer Wall at
