I had the pleasure of meeting Itohan Omolere at a recent conference in Chicago. This young woman’s elegant spoken word artistry and tender heart for the persecuted Church immediately captured both my theological and theatrical heart.

As her carefully crafted words unfold stories of Christian endurance from Mosul to North Korea and places beyond, she transitions between locations with a haunting and tender lilt: “Is this what it means to follow…?”

Watch Itohan deliver To Those Who Suffer (Gloria)  in this eight minute video, while I prepare the next installment in our Domestic Persecution series.

You can enjoy more of Itohan’s thoughts by following her on Twitter: @toloveandobey.
