A pastor and five members of his ministry team were arrested Friday night in New Orleans, Louisiana for preaching on Bourbon Street after sunset.

Pastor Troy Bohn of RAVEN Ministries (Restoring a Vision and Evangelizing Nations) and his ministry associates were taken into custody as they were sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ after 10:00 p.m. with the many men and women who had gathered on the infamous street.

Bourbon Street is located in the French Quarter, and is most known for its preponderance of bars and strip clubs. It is the center of night life in the city and also a tourist attraction during events like Mardis Gras and the Southern Decadence Festival, which are known for featuring lewd acts in the streets. Bohn called the area his “mission field” as he has been preaching in the city since 1996. He said that he engages in evangelistic activity in New Orleans at least three times a week.

Seorang pendeta dan lima anggota tim pelayanannya ditangkap Jumat malam di New Orleans, Louisiana untuk berkhotbah di Bourbon Street setelah matahari terbenam.

Pastor Troy Bohn dari RAVEN Ministries (Mengembalikan Visi dan Evangelisasi Bangsa2) dan rekan pelayanan-Nya dibawa ke tahanan karena mereka berbagi Injil Yesus Kristus setelah 10:00 dengan banyak pria dan wanita yang telah berkumpul di jalan terkenal itu.

Bourbon Street terletak di kuartal Perancis, dan yang paling dikenal dominan atas bar dan klub strip. Ini adalah pusat kehidupan malam di kota dan juga merupakan objek wisata selama acara seperti Mardis Gras dan Festival dekadensi Selatan, yang dikenal untuk menampilkan tindakan cabul di jalan-jalan. Bohn menyebut daerahnya “misi lapangan” karena ia telah berkhotbah di kota itu sejak 1996. Dia mengatakan bahwa dia aktif dalam kegiatan penginjilan di New Orleans sedikitnya tiga kali seminggu.
