Bible Distributor Protected by Government Official

[196] prayers in [16] nations have been posted for Front-line worker.

When a front-line worker was arrested for possession of 30 Bibles that he intended to distribute, a high-ranking official protected the Christian, scolding the police officers who arrested him. “Why did you take these books from that man?” he demanded. “I know about this; they are my responsibility.” The official kept the Bibles but released the front-line worker. Praise God for the official’s compassion toward the Christian. Pray that the confiscated Bibles will reach those who need to hear the gospel inside this restricted nation.
