Sudan: New Threat to Religious Freedom After Coup

Following a recent military coup in Sudan, international human rights organizations are warning of a new threat to the religious freedom of Christians in this northeast African nation. Under the previous military government, it not only became illegal to convert to Christianity, but some churches were forcibly closed, demolished and even burned down. Closer to the Fire host Greg Musselman speaks with Petr Jasek, the Global Ambassador for The Voice of the Martyrs international, about the current situation facing Christians in Sudan. After being arrested by Sudanese authorities in 2017, Petr spent 445 days in prison for working on a mission to help the underground church. Petr writes about his harrowing ordeal in the book, Imprisoned with ISIS: Faith in the Face of Evil.
