Suffering for the name of Jesus now

Commenting on the suffering for the name of Jesus until He returns, Cole remembers:
‘I recall an amazing conversation at the lunch table at a theological college. A Nigerian student and a Pakistani student in their last semester were discussing returning to their respective homelands. The Nigerian thought he would have to endure beatings and house burnings as he ministered in the northern part of the country. (Sadly, it is far more dangerous now.) The Pakistani student calmly said that he expected to be killed within the first five years of his return.’
