Courageous Kingdom Warriors Share How They Were Imprisoned for Their Faith

by | Feb 23, 2021 | Evangelism

In the inaugural episode of the new Forbidden Faith podcast from The Voice of the Martyrs, listeners heard how “Sister Amber” experienced God’s presence when she was arrested in Tibet and tortured by Chinese police. Continuing the conversation, today’s episode features Dmitry “David” Shestakov sharing how God transformed him from a drug abuser and criminal into a servant of Christ who was imprisoned in Uzbekistan for his faith.

Podcast listeners (and Christians around the world) will have another chance to hear from former prisoners for Christ during a worldwide Imprisoned for Christ Virtual Event on March 5, 2021. The Voice of the Martyrs is pleased to offer you this special opportunity to hear the inspiring testimonies of Christian workers Petr Jasek, Andrew Brunson and Dan Baumann. More than 75,000 Christians have already registered to hear about God’s faithfulness to these men who were imprisoned in different restricted nations dominated by Islam.

Like today’s podcast guest, each of them was arrested, interrogated and imprisoned for sharing God’s love. Though they all struggled to find God’s purpose in their suffering, they ultimately recognized His steadfast faithfulness and love. Forbidden Faith host Todd Nettleton will moderate a roundtable discussion with two of the former prisoners, and Dove Award–winning artist Natalie Grant will provide worship music for the event.

Listen now to hear how God blessed David Shestakov through the prayers and letters of believers around the world during his imprisonment. David also shares how listeners can pray for imprisoned Christians and for their families, whose suffering is sometimes greater than that of their imprisoned family member. After you listen, register for the Imprisoned for Christ Virtual Event to hear more inspiring stories of God’s faithfulness amid desperate circumstances. {eoa}
