Please pray for the persecuted: John, the son of a
Taliban leader, met Jesus in a vision. As a result he lost his family, his
wealth and his son. Along with his wife, Mary, they endured
immense suffering. John was imprisoned and tortured for 18 months in
a bunker in his father’s home. Today they are living in another country
and have another son. John says, “Every second I work for God, I want
more people to see Jesus. God said that he made many houses in
Heaven, he needs people in them.”
