The challenges of ministering in a highly restricted country had led ‘Ali’ to sell his house and possessions, with the intent of seeking refugee status in the West. After meeting with other Christian leaders for training in another country, however, he reconsidered his plan.
One topic discussed at the meeting was the decision of whether to continue ministering in a difficult situation or to leave for the West. After a discussion of Matthew 28, including Jesus’ command to make disciples of all nations and His promise to be with His followers to the end, Ali decided to return to his country and persevere through whatever challenges he might face.
Ali’s wife, who had not wanted to leave, was excited about his decision. Please pray for Ali and his family as well as the other Christian leaders who attended the training.
