While there I discovered a persecuted, yet vibrant church. My life was in danger of extremists who came to disrupt the meetings however prayer deterred them. Here is a picture of a tent meeting where this bold venture took place for the Gospel. God is good and He kept us safe with hundreds accepting Christ.
