Colombia: An Interview with Kelly Saenz, the Wife of a Martyr

Greg Musselman recently travelled with a team from 100 Huntley Street to Colombia where he interviewed Kelly, a widowed wife and mother of two children. During their conversation, she candidly speaks about her firsthand experience with persecution which sadly involved the death of her late husband Pabel. Despite experiencing this incredible tragedy, with God’s help, Kelly has been able to forgive! Today, this remarkable woman is continuing Pabel’s evangelistic work, while also helping other persecuted Christians in Colombia’s dangerous areas.

Pray for Colombia

Please uphold all those in Colombia who’ve been victimized through acts of violence, asking the Lord to meet their needs, heal them of their brokenness, and bring about renewed hope and restoration. Also intercede for their persecutors so that they, too, will witness the love of Christ and experience His forgiveness and salvation.
