For me, the persecuted church keeps me thankful for my freedom to serve, worship and participate in church. The persecuted church also reminds me to keep my eyes on our big God that is faithful and sovereign no matter the circumstance.
Let's not forget to pray for our brothers and sisters that experience persecution, especially in the countries of Myanmar, Laos, Vietnam and China. Many pastors from these areas want to come to the Serve Asia Conference in February but they face many obstacles.
Pray that doors would open for them to come...that God's favor would be on them at border crossings...that God would watch over their families.
