Prayer Request: Week of March 18th, 2018

A Beautiful Book

The Bible is banned in one East Asian country, but some non-believers actually find it a source of curiosity. One regime employee came across a confiscated Bible while persecuting “traitors”. Though suspicious at first, he was drawn in by the beauty of the bonded leather cover. He was told that a 14-year-old boy had been caught with the forbidden book, and although beaten and tortured, refused to deny his faith. Six years later, this employee decided to give up his safe and comfortable life to commit his life to Christ. He now puts his life on the line to smuggle Bibles into his country and share with as many people as possible. Every time he crosses the border, he is reminded of the comforting words of Jesus to Martha in John 11:25-26 “…The one who believes in me will live, even though they die; and whoever lives by believing in me will never die.”

Please pray for opportunity and perseverance!
