I read this article recently, and it gave great joy to my heart. I am not in the field per se, but I have heard many testimonies like this from missionaries.
Also, reading quotes like the following, really encourages me to put things in perspective.
If you’re persecuted just thank God that you haven’t been beaten, if you’ve been beaten, thank God you haven’t been thrown in prison, if you’re in prison, thank God you haven’t been killed, and if you’ve been killed, thank God that you’re with Jesus in heaven.
YHWH is out to save His people 🙂
