Prayer & Fasting: Afghan Believer Jailed for Following Christ

Last night Pastor challenged us to pray and fast one day a month for the evangelism of the world. I came across a story on Friday of last week that has seen some attention on Christian sites on the internet, but has not received attention in the main stream media.

On May 31, 2010, 25 Afghanistan believers were arrested after a video was aired showing them at a worship service. One Afghan believer, Said Musa, has received the most attention because a letter he wrote to President Obama was smuggled out of Afghanistan. According to various sources Musa converted to Christianity eight years ago. He is the father of six children the oldest being eight years old. Said lost his leg on a landmine as fighting for the Afghan army.
