At What Cost? – An Update

In an earlier post I shared the story of “Rashid,” a Pakistani Christ follower living in Athens, Greece. I just got this update on my friend. I am amazed at his bold faith in the midst of trials.

Arrested by Police and spent some hours in the Police station. I was on a full bus with refuges. A policeman snatched my cell phone and slap me on my face. After checking criminal records I was released, with warning to stay at home do not come out…or leave Greece.  In the police station I shared with two guys about Jesus and Bible, and we pray together.  One of them accepted the message, and wants to read the Bible and be baptized. The other wanted to meet me again and he wanted to ask some questions. Remember me in your prayers.”

Please do remember Rashid in your prayers.  He will likely read this blog, so if you want to give him a message of encouragement, please feel free to do so!

    Rashid, I have been praying that God would surround you with His angels and that you would be able to leave your home undetected by police. I pray that you would be protected and blessed as you continue, even through harassment and abuse, to share the love of Christ with others.

    Hi, Rashid. We are lifting you up in prayer and asking God to protect you in every way possible. May God continue to give you a spirit of boldness as you lift up the name of Jesus. May you feel His presence very, very near you so you never feel alone on this journey. Your sister in Christ, Marcia.
