Middle East: God Will Carry You Through

Andrew is a Christian in a Middle Eastern country, where most people are Muslims and Christians are not free to share their faith in public. He has been arrested and questioned several times for sharing the gospel. Read his comments below about his visits to the police station.

Andrew’s Comments
Often people think that persecuted Christians are heroes, that they do everything without being afraid. No. I was terrified. Every single time, I was terrified. It is super scary to go through.

When I travel into nations where Christians are persecuted, I am freaked out at the airport. But being afraid is not the problem. The problem is letting the fear control you. You have to not only know about God, but know who He is, because He is the only one who will be able to carry you through it.

Many times the police asked me, “What are you telling people? What are you telling Muslims?”

That is a wonderful opportunity to share the gospel with the police. They got to hear the gospel over and over and over. One day they will stand before the throne and they will have no excuse before the Lord. They have heard the gospel.
