COCHABAMBA, Bolivia – A pastor in Argentina has received threatening letters and had posters of his face displayed in Quilmes after the city’s mayor closed down the congregation’s newly constructed ministry center. The Rev. Raul David Caballero said the closure for alleged building code violations in March was part of a harassment campaign mounted against him for exposing corruption in the administration of Sergio Villordo. The pastor of the 1,200-member Church of the Encounter is also editor-in-chief of Perspectiva Sur, which has published articles critical of Villordo. Church of the Encounter has appealed the closure decision, but Caballero said a prompt resolution is unlikely as Villordo controls the municipal court.
