Where in the World......???

Some of you may be reading this week thinking that you already know all about the places where the Persecuted Church resides. Here are only a few highlights of the MANY places where extreme reaction to the name Jesus can be found.....

Central Asia.....

And the powerful story of Youcef Nadarkhani that is currently going on even as you read this blog.......

What are the days and nights like for someone like Youcef? He has said that he is removed from his cell, tortured for a few hours at a time and then walked a very long route through the main corridor of the jail. The guards walk him closer and closer to the front of the jail where the doors are wide open and throw him to his knees.

"Renounce Christ! Proclaim that Allah is the one true God! Then, you may have your freedom and walk out these doors right this moment." The guards yell these things to him over and over again.

He patiently waits until they have finished. He stands to his feet and walks back to his jail cell.

If this was your pastor.....father........brother......friend......would you hope that people all over the world were praying for him by name? Will you pray for him tonight??
