The observance of Holy Week is not only a time of great celebration and triumph for believers but also increased danger for millions of followers around the world. We hear from Todd Nettleton, who shares an update on recent violence in Indonesia, along with other stories from our persecuted brothers and sisters in Christ. Even as we gather in worship in relative safety, we are reminded and encouraged to pray for Christians worldwide as we rejoice in the hope of Easter.
