Petr Jasek a Christian from Czech Republic who went to Sudan on a mission to help persecuted christians, Unfortunately he ended up being persecuted himself. He was in jail for over a period of 445 days.
“Within the first three months, I lost 25 kilograms of my body weight. And in the first month through internal bleeding, I had lost literally half of my blood,” Jasek told Crux staff in a 2020 interview, “on top of that I was in a cell with six members of Islamic State…I was being beaten, then slandered and tortured by them.”
We might think that he would have lost his faith but instead, Jasek revealed that the Lord was with him throughout his imprisonment, and he knew God had placed him there to reach prisoners with the gospel: “The Lord allowed me to have a Bible. Fellow prisoners wanted to hear the gospel,” Jasek said.
