In many communist countries, believers risk their lives to get a copy of God’s Word. A former soldier was imprisoned for his Christian witness in one Southeast Asia nation.
Prior to finding Christ, he served as a soldier and later as assistant district governor. His job took him to Christian villages, where he became intrigued by the villagers worship. Eventually he became a believer and couldn’t stop sharing his new-found faith. “I went back to my home church and talked about God,” he told Voice of the Martyrs during an interview. “Many people would come; they wanted to become Christians.”
The government, however, was not so receptive to his conversion and imprisoned him for 15 years. But, instead of food, what he wanted more than anything was a Bible.
