Joy in prison

“A Muslim background believer, Hamid (not his real name for security reasons) is in prison because of his faith in Christ. . . . Hamid reported with great joy, ‘This prison is full of political prisoners, former government officials, and Muslim insurgents. I have had the opportunity to share Jesus with people with whom I would have never had access if I was not here.’ His words echoed Joseph’s words in the Bible, ‘You intended to harm me, but God intended it for good to accomplish what is now being done, the saving of many lives’ (Genesis 50:20 NIV).” From a missionary newsletter, Oct. 2.
