In some of the most restricted countries the Gospel spreads in an unprecedented way, driven by prayer, boldness, persecution, and the Holy Spirit, according to a report by ‘Brother Jonathan’,
a Voice of the Martyrs missionary. “What we are seeing around the world is really a Gospel wildfire,” he says. Recently Jonathan asked one indigenous leader in Myanmar about their strategy
to send workers into unreached villages, and he replied:
“The secret is Fridays.” “What is it about Fridays?” Jonathan wanted to know. “On Fridays we all come together and we fast and we pray – every Friday, all day.” “What if you’re going into a
hostile village?” “If we think it’s going to be a really hostile area, we set aside seven days to fast and pray. When that’s over we go and let the chips fall where they may.” Jonathan spoke to a 19-year-old worker in Myanmar who told him: “I’m going to move into a village where there are no churches and no Christians.”
He planned to build a small lean-to in the forest to live in, work in the rice fields, and start sharing the Gospel. “I’m going to plant a church and appoint a leader and then I’m going to move and do it again,” the young worker told him. “How long do you think you’ll do this?” Jonathan asked. “Until Jesus comes back.”
