Prison and beating: the reward for giving out Scriptures

Tuesday, November 29th, 2011

One reason why the church in Iran is growing is because evangelists take great risks to give out New Testaments; usually the pocket sized one published by Elam Ministries. By last summer one brother had passed on thousands of copies, but one afternoon his activities were spotted and he experienced the reward of being beaten for the name of Christ. He also spent over a month in jail facing abusive interrogation. In his first two days of detention this brother was depressed and in great pain. But on the third day the Lord ministered to his spirit and he sensed in his heart that every Scripture he had passed on had had a purpose. The Master was pleased with his work.

Pray for

• All the brave Christians who give out God’s Word
• God to comfort those who have suffered for their ministry
• More New Testaments to flood into Iran
