Open Doors LIVE is a monthly podcast from Open Doors New Zealand hosted by Mike Gore, James Kozina and Jocelyn Goto.

This podcast brings the persecuted church to life, with each episode containing life-changing stories that mentor us in our faith as we learn how to follow Jesus no matter the cost.

 

Episode 45 - Overview

In this episode, James Kozina shares the story of a new believer from Central Asia. When Khan revealed his faith in Jesus, his family retaliated. They attacked with him a chainsaw, sending him to hospital.

But even after the violence and rejection, Khan was determined to return and share the gospel with them.

In this episode:

  • The price of following Jesus in Central Asia.
  • A miraculous survival story from a persecuted Christian.
  • How the love of Jesus can lead us to share Him, even with our persecutors.
