As most have probably heard, a man (father, husband, Christian) who moved to Libya to make an impact for Christ, was shot and killed last Thursday.  You can read about it here and here.

Since he made reference to John Piper often, and how his sermons inspired him to make an impact globally for Jesus, John Piper felt compelled, and with permission wrote an article called:  “When we send a person to his death.

“The blood of he martyrs is the seed of the Church.” – Tertullian, 2nd Century AD.
