visitors at church

Today at church we had a young man from Azerbazhan. He gave what he called the "short version" of his testimony. He started off by saying that Russian was not his first language and that he didn't speak it very well. He asked us not to laugh if he made a mistake.

I overheard later that his accent was too strong and his grammar was a disaster... this is incentive to continue on in language school!

He grew up on the streets in a strong Muslim community. He talked about almost dying three times while he served in the Army. He talked about being afraid to read the Koran. But, reading the New Testament gave him comfort. He was led to Christ by one of his neighbors. This neighbor lived in one of the houses he had previously vandalised. Living as a Christian in a predominantly Muslim area is very dangerous.

Please pray for the believers there and in other places of the world where just acknowledging Christ can put your life in jeopardy.
