I'm sharing the second part to The Power of Radio a continuation of the feature in Christian Life in London last month . If you missed Part 1, click HERE. The summary of Part 1: D and S is a couple I met in Central Asia after they had fled their home country due to persecution. They came to Canada as refugees, but life remained difficult. Keep reading.

D and S were married and D continued to volunteer with TWR distributing Bibles and discipling new believers. In this country, being a Christian comes with risk and one never knows if those seeking discipleship are genuine or are hoping to expose Christians for the government. Inevitably, D was reported to the authorities and questioned about her faith. D and S knew the window of opportunity to escape was closing. If the government took their passports they would never be able to leave.

Did they stay and minister to their people and face jail time (or worse) or did they flee? After much prayer, they left their country and applied for refugee status with the UN. Their hope was to come to Canada. At this point, there was no going back. They would be arrested if they tried to return.

Refugees
For nearly two years they lived as refugees. They loved the Lord and trusted He would provide in every circumstance, but waiting was difficult. They could not work legally because they were refugees, so they subsisted on help from friends and family. They had little food, worried their families would be persecuted because of them, but they never complained. They simply waited on the Lord.

In Canada...
In Canada, life was difficult but better. They had to learn a new language, and had little family support, but they were welcomed by a church family in London, ON and received many helps. They moved from Ontario to Alberta to attend Bible school and in that time they had two children. Their oldest child, still an infant, was diagnosed with a terminal illness. She was not expected to live, but God brought the couple to a doctor who happened to know of this rare illness and delivered appropriate treatment – but still, the prognosis was grim. Today, the infant that the doctors said would die is a happy vibrant child with a bright smile and a quick laugh. Their daughter is called a miracle child by her own doctors because scientifically there is no explanation for why she survived other than God had His hand on this child.

This couple is such an encouragement because despite all of the hardships and trials they endured, they never lost sight of the one who keeps His children in the palm of His hand. They have fought the fight, run the race and kept the faith. They are an example of how, in even the most difficult times, we need to keep our eyes on Jesus and trust that He has it all under control.

Happy Ending
From a radio in a store, God spoke into D’s heart and changed her life completely. Since then, four of D’s immediate family members have accepted the Lord and four in her extended family.
