God is alive in Syria! This week we talk with "John," a Christian worker from Syria who shares that in spite of the civil war and advances by radical Muslims, God is still at work in Syria. You'll hear how Christians are responding in the midst of the strife there, how VOM is assisting Syrian Christians and you'll learn specific ways you can pray for God's people in Syria.
"Are you willing to go to jail for three years in order to keep working with us on this project?" It is an intimidating question, but those who secretly deliver Bibles to China's Christians know that it is a very real risk. "Brother Joel" is one of VOM's Bible distribution partners, helping deliver Bibles into every province of China. Every single year he asks each one of his workers that question: are you ready to go to jail to keep giving away Bibles? Listen in this week to learn about Joel's work and how his workers answer that question.
Whenever I read the Scripture, it's full of persecution. For Dr. Berhane, a Christian from Eritrea, persecution is not only in Scripture, it's also a part of his personal story. He spent 11 months in prison for his faith in Christ. But even in prison he saw God's hand at work and found opportunities to witness to others. Listen as he shares about how prison guards would come and read the names of prisoners to be executed that day, with each prisoner wondering if that day was the day their name would be on the list. Yet in the midst of suffering and executions, Dr. Berhane says he experienced an inner peace through the presence of Jesus Christ.
