Pastor Tomaza Victoria Ayala Zellero and her family were evicted from their home on the 22nd May 2009.
She is part of the Apostolic Movement and pastors an Apostolic Church in Central Elia, Las Tunas province, Cuba.
They were originally told that the house, which also served as their Church, would be confiscated in July 2008, despite the fact that Tomaza and her husband, Jorge, had lived there for almost 30 years and were the legal owners.
When they were evicted the authorities gave them documents prohibiting Tomaza from holding any religious services and the police chief threatened to imprison her for ‘dangerousness’.
Finally, the authorities also forcibly closed their carpentry shop, leaving the family homeless and depriving them of an income.
Please pray for Tomaza and her family, that God gives them the strength to endure all the hardships from which they are presently suffering.
I know that they would welcome all your letters and support to show that many people are thinking of them – and praying for them.
Tomaza’s address is:-

With many peaceful blessings
