Pastor Nimer:

It is so beautiful to have an organization like Help The Persecuted for people like me, whether pastor or not. It made all the difference to see this kind of love and support. We are happy with the team and the kindness they showed us. It’s not only the place provided, but the spiritual support and prayers. We feel so grateful and blessed. It’s so wonderful.

Pastor Nimer:

First of all my time on earth is very limited. I want to use it to speak about Christ and His love for all people. Heaven rejoices when someone is saved, and I want to have a mission to help save as many people as I can through Christ.
