I'm waiting for my copy of Tortured for Christ, I did a quick search and found a pdf of it. Just kinda glancing through I found this paragraph...
We Made a Deal--We Preached and They Beat
It was strictly forbidden to preach to other prisoners. It was understood that whoever was caught doing this received a severe beating. A number of us decided to pay the price for the privilege of preaching, so we accepted their terms. It was a deal; we preached and they beat us. We were happy preaching. They were happy beating us, so everyone was happy.
The following scene happened more times than I can remember: A brother was preaching to the other prisoners when the guards suddenly burst in, surprising him half way through a phrase. They hauled him down the corridor to their "beating room". After what seemed an endless beating, they brought him back and threw him--bloody and bruised--on the prison floor. Slowly, he picked his battered body up, painfully straightened his clothing and said, "now, brethren, where did I leave off when I was interrupted?" He continued his Gospel message!
May Yahweh have mercy on us all, that if we have to go to prison for him someday that we too would count it all joy...if we have to take a beating for him that we would be happy to be chosen to suffer for his name sake...and if we have to die for him we would follow our Messiah and be willing to lay our lives down for Him...
In the name of Yahshua the Messiah
