Remember Our Brothers and Sisters in Christ

This morning I came across a quote written by a Chinese Evangelist while he was in prison:
"I am not afraid of being looked down upon by people, because, when I look up I see the smiling face of God"

I admire our brothers and sisters who are in difficult persecution right now! I can't begin to imagine what they are going through. I am blessed to live in a country where I don't have to worry about having my Bible taken from me or having the police come and take me away to prison. Yes, sometimes people will insult us but we don't have to face being taken away from our families or being killed. If you were going through persecution right now what would you do? Would you give in? Or would you stand up to them?

I wanted to ask everyone to please pray for our fellow believers.

In Christ,
Matthew 5:11-12: " Blessed are you when people insult you, persecute you and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of me. Rejoice and be glad, because great is your reward in heaven, for in the same way they persecuted the prophets who were before you."
