My friend, a missionary to a group of people called Uyghur, send me a link to this video of his friend in China, who is imprisoned. He was accused for “preaching the gospel to Uyghurs, distributing Christian literature, and leading people to follow Christ”.

You’re blessed when your commitment to God provokes persecution. The persecution drives you even deeper into God’s kingdom.

Mat 5:10 (The Message)
