    So far, I've only been able to find that the Russian Supreme Court is still hearing the case. Has anyone else heard anything different?

    www.jw.org under news and make sure you get the one dated April 7th. That was the third day and as Tbax points out it continues we believe April 12th. Lets all pray for our brothers and sisters and those you mentioned on your find.

    Thank you

    I was reading about the trial, and came across this page I thought people here would find interesting.

    Remember that we JWs are expecting this to occur, on even a larger scale than simply Russia. We are not frightened in the least. The prayers you will hear at the Kingdom Halls is for our brothers and sisters to have the faith to endure.

    At the end of the day, it won't stop the work. It will just go underground.
    If it was to go underground then the consequences would be more siever than if they were not doing it underground.
    May the LORD have mercy upon us all and richly bless us.

    More so than under Soviet rule?

    Won't matter.

    It is the worst thing that can be done to suppress the JW faith. It vindicates it in spectacular fashion.

    JWs live for this stuff.

    My prayers go out to them, to my brothers who, in their "extremism" won't lift a finger to do violence for the state.

    What choice do we have? We must obey God as ruler, rather then man.
