Jimi is a follower of Christ living in the United Arab Emirates.  He lives daily with restrictions upon freely living for Christ.  Stops by the police checking if he has permission to be in certain areas doing "church work."  As a matter of fact, he is not to do work outside the four walls of the church building.  

In neighboring Saudi Arabia as well as the UAE, Christians either leave the country or stay underground.  He told me a story of a young woman who chose to follow Christ and when her father found out, he cut out her tongue and then burned her to death…

Pray.
