Captive

Continue to pray for Shoaib Assadullah. You can read more about his situation in the following article: 23-year old faces death penalty for accepting Jesus.

From his own pen:

“It has almost been 5 months that I have been in jail. The only reason is that I am a Christian.”

As believers we have a responsibility:

“Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves, for the rights of all who are destitute. Speak up and judge fairly; defend the rights of the poor and needy.” Proverbs 31:8-9
