We were able to receive this recent quote from Brother Youcef: “As you want me to give up Christ and otherwise have to die, then I simply have to die.” Thank the Lord that his faith is strong and unmovable! We continue to pray that the death sentence will be overturned and Youcef released. The attorney is in the process of appealing to the supreme court.
His written verdict has been posted online for you to read.
Here is a photo album with pictures of brother Youcef and family. http://www.facebook.com/album.php?aid=243578&id=125527830763
Pray for these brothers and ask for God’s protection and deliverance in their lives. “Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you.” Pray for their guards, interrogators, and the security service, that God would change their hearts and save their souls.
We need your continued support for the ministry to these believers. We are translating the message, supporting missionaries, and getting materials into their hands. Lord willing, we are also planning an upcoming trip for ministry to the Middle East. We request your prayers for each area of our ministry.
