Since late April 2021, civil unrest has afflicted Colombia. None of Jehovah’s Witnesses have been killed or injured. However, in some areas the supply chains for food and fuel have been affected. Our brothers are coping with the subsequent shortages as well as the ongoing challenges resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic.
