IMB personnel Donald and Helen McKinney* serve in a part of South Asia where pastors, churches, and believers are severely persecuted. Some have been beaten, arrested, and put in jail. Believers living in poverty have suffered continual persecution.
Through extreme circumstances, though, God has revealed himself. People have turned to Christ, though they know they will face hostility for doing so. Even so, they’ve decided any persecution they may face pales in comparison to the surpassing worth of Christ.
