David and Linda were the first ministry workers sent by The Brooklyn Tabernacle overseas. They serve the Persecuted Church in a "restricted nation" region that is hostile and suspicious of followers of Jesus. They have led many to Jesus, and this has led to persecution against the believers and to their own family. This was driven home when a package bomb was sent to their house by radical enemies of the Gospel. Their son opened the package thinking it was a gift, and the bomb critically injured him; thankfully, he survived.
Despite this terrible attack, the family was able to forgive the attacker publicly, and it provided an incredible opportunity for the Gospel testimony to be broadcast throughout the country.
Their continued vision is for One New Man of all nations walking under the banner of Jesus Christ, whether rich or poor, male or female; and including people from all walks of life, no matter their earthly social status. Despite the many difficulties and barriers they have encountered, David and Linda have demonstrated the unconditional love of Jesus to their neighbors and have led many to a new relationship with the Lord. Please keep them in prayer.
