This week as I have been resting from my eye surgery, I have had a lot of time just to be still, pray and think. I have thought a lot about the last 15 wonderful years as the pastor of Southside Bible Church in Greenwood, Indiana. My mind’s eye has taken me back to all of the different places we have met in for worship. These are great memories. But these memories have been interrupted numerous times this week as I have reflected on the events surrounding Pastor Youcef Nadarkhani. Pastor Youcef is younger than my three sons. He has been arrested by the Islamic regime in Tehran for converting to Christianity. It appears that he will soon be executed because of his unwillingness to recant his faith in Jesus Christ. There is no doubt in my mind that his testimony will be used of the Lord to reach many thousands all around the world. His ministry is not one of wonderful buildings or exciting programs. It is much simpler and yet much more powerful. It is a ministry and a life of simple faith. Please join me and Kathleen and we join with thousands of other believers all around the world in praying for Pastor Youcef, his wife and their children.
