We have it tough?

Here's the skinny: Abdul Rahman, a Muslim convert to Christ in Afghanistan, has been arrested and put on trial for changing his faith. The law in Afghanistan says that this crime is punishable by death. Most western countries (who are funding the rebuilding in Afghanistan) are furious over the lack of religious freedom and putting the pressure hard core on the Afghan president to spare this guy's life. Now, the judges hearing the case are saying the man is unfit mentally (read crazy) to stand trial, and most likely will be spared. SO, best case senario for Abdul, he doesn't get killed for converting to Christ, only judged to be insane. And we think we have it tough?

Here's praying that God raise up more American Christians who will respond to the challenge to take the gospel to these least reached places on the earth.
