A Doomed Mission

The cold of the prison cell quickly penetrated Joseph's thin clothes, chilling him to the bone. His body ached from the beating he had just received. His internal organs felt deeply bruised and his knee was broken—probably beyond repair. He wondered if this was the end of his life.

Mercy for a Mullah

Morad, a Christian, sat waiting in a government office that issues licenses for cars. He noticed that a man sitting in the waiting area with him was a mullah (the term for an educated Muslim trained in religious law and doctrine, and who usually holds an official post). The wait had been long, and the mullah grew increasingly impatient. Unable to contain his frustration any longer, he blurted out loudly, "The people working in the office are in need of God's forgiveness!"

The entire prison compound was ablaze. Thinking of his family members far away, Maung began to pray for deliverance. "Lord, I'm here for obeying you and bringing Bibles into China! Save me!"

Fishing for the King

Charles Mithowa laid his head on the the table in front of me and began to weep. It was a warm African night in the city of Blantyre, Malawi, and we were sitting together in a small restaurant. He didn't receive our news well. Charles had been anxiously awaiting our arrival since early morning, and now it was past 9 p.m. After months of anticipating our visit to his Bible school for a day of teaching, we were all deeply disappointed by the likelihood that we wouldn't even get to meet his students. We were more than twelve hours behind schedule because the rickety truck we were traveling in broke down, and we were now stranded in Blantyre. Not knowing what to do next, we listened across the table as Charles, now composed, told us his story.
