ICC Note: Petr Jasek recently related the story of his 14 month imprisonment in Sudan. The Czaech missionary was held by the Sudanese government on suspicions of espionage. He was even tortured by ISIS members who were in prison with him.
04/10/2018 Sudan (Christian Post) – Czech missionary Petr Jasek shared Saturday how God spared him from waterboard torture at the hands of Islamic State extremists and eventually used him to lead fellow inmates to Christ during his 14-month imprisonment in Sudan.
For the first time since he was released from a Sudanese prison last year, the Africa regional director for Voice of the Martyrs detailed the horrifying story of his detainment at one of the mission organization’s all-day conferences in the United States.
Jasek was among a handful of Christians who shared their testimonies before hundreds gathered at the McLean Bible Church in Vienna, Virginia for the VOM Advance Conference.
Jasek told the audience that he is “living proof that our Lord answers our prayers.”
Jasek was accused of espionage and treason by the government when he traveled to Sudan in December 2015 to document persecution faced by Christians in the nation.
Although Jasek originally planned to be in Sudan for just four days, he wound up being imprisoned for 445 before his release in 2017. During that time, Jasek was placed in five different prisons.
