    Urgent Report
    June 6,2002

    The Department of Intercession of the Church Union received a copy of this report form the City of Chudovo, Novgorod Oblast.

    On June 3, 2002, the Believers of the Novgorod Oblast, living in the cities of Novgorod, Borovichi, Okulovka, and Chudovo, performing evangelization in the city of Chudovo erected a tent. On the morning of June 5, the official guard arrived in a patrol car, demanded the removal of the tent, and ordered the Believers to come to the police station. In the afternoon of the same day, the Chief of Police arrived and started threatening to send a detachment of police to remove the tent. The threats continued through the day.

    On June 6, at 8:20 a.m. the Mayor of Chudovo, Valentin G. Makarov, declared, “I will give you two hours to get away from the city. And in case of non-conformity, I will send a police detachment.” He also threatened them with an official reprimand and deportation from Chudovo. His actions were motivated by sympathy to the Orthodox Church. He decided to be guided by advice from Father Alexandr.

    We are asking for prayer support and interceding that the evangelization will be finished, because there are people in Chudovo who want to listen to the Word of God. The tent has been placed in a convenient place without interference to pedestrians or traffic.

    This is from the Department of Intercession of the Council of Evangelical Christian-Baptist Churchs, Moscow. These are the formerly underground Believers.
