85-Year-Old Widow Evicted of Apartment for Offering to Pray for People

Diana Martin, 85, had been living in her Hanford apartment for nearly 14 years. The owner and city’s vice-mayor, John Draxler, informed her earlier this year that she had been evicted for sharing her faith and offering to pray for individuals. He then also added that her age contributed to her eviction in follow-up discussions.

Draxler still told her to leave despite knowing her rent was fully paid and she had nowhere to go.

“When [Martin] started to cry, protesting that it was winter and she had no children living nearby, Draxler reportedly told her that was not his problem.” She has since moved out according to CBN News.

The complex had been advertised to seniors when Martin moved in over a decade earlier. But management changed and invited younger people in latest years, removing as many elderly inhabitants as possible, including Martin.

“What happened to our client, Diana Martin, was wrong on many levels,” PJI Attorney Matthew McReynolds said in a press release. “No one should be evicted based on their religious expression, but especially not an elderly great-grandmother. We are hopeful that a State investigation and remedial action will ensure this doesn’t happen to anyone else in this community.”

Please pray for Diana and all those persecuted for their faith in Jesus. Please share!
