What's It All About?

Operation 10:14 is a project based off of Romans 10:14-15.
“How then will they call on Him in whom they have not believed? And how
are they to believe in Him of whom they have never heard? And how are they to
hear without someone preaching? And how are they to preach unless they are
sent? As it is written, ‘How beautiful are the feet of those who preach the
good news!’”
We find it very important to make the Gospel known among
every people group and nation. Our ultimate goal is to praise God and have God
be worshiped! Follow us as we do our best to accomplish The Great Commission.

What Would You Do?

What Would You Do?

“The Communist soldiers had discovered their illegal Bible study.

As the pastor was reading from the Bible, men with guns suddenly broke into the home, terrorizing the believers who had gathered there to worship. The Communists shouted insults and threatened to kill the Christians. The leading officer pointed his gun at the pastor’s head. ‘Hand me your Bible,’ he demanded. Reluctantly, the pastor handed over his Bible, his prized possession. With a sneer on his face, the guard threw the Word of God on the floor at his feet.

He glared at the small congregation. ‘We will let you go, ‘he growled, ‘but first, you must spit on this book of lies. Anyone who refuses will be shot.’ The believers had no choice but to obey the officer’s order. A soldier pointed his gun at one of the men. ‘You first.’

The man slowly got up and knelt down by the Bible. Reluctantly, he spit on it, praying, ‘Father, please forgive me.’ He stood up and walked to the door. The soldiers stood back and allowed him to leave. ‘Okay, you!’ the soldier said, nudging a woman forward. In tears, she could barely do what the soldier demanded. She spit only a little, but it is enough. She too was allowed to leave.

Quietly, a sixteen-year-old girl came forward. Overcome with love for her Lord, she knelt down and picked up the Bible. She wiped off the spit with her dress. ‘What have they done to Your Word? Please forgive them,’ she prayed.

The Communist soldier put his pistol to her head. Then he pulled the trigger.”
