Please Pray for The Persecuted: Voice of the Martyrs, an organization which helps the persecuted, shares the following testimony. Inzali, is a brave Burmese Christian woman who sees God’s grace at work among those culturally opposed to the Gospel. A man who reported her for sharing the Gospel developed lung disease. He confessed his sin to Inzali in hope that it would appease her God. Inzali offered the man her forgiveness and shared the gospel with him. He had not seen a doctor, so as an expression of Christ’s love, she took him to the hospital. He later became a believer.
