Pastor of an underground house church in Saudi Arabia
Pastor Wally Magdangal was the pastor of an underground/secret house church in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia during the Persian Gulf War. His church grew to be among the largest in Saudi Arabia. Due to the impact he was having on the Muslim world, he became the most wanted person by the religious authorities in the land of the Muslims. After several attempts, Pastor Wally was arrested and placed in prison where he was tortured because of his faith in Christ Jesus. In the midst of horrendous beatings and circumstances, God continually showed His love and faithfulness to His servant. After experiencing the humiliation of the Saudi Arabian High Court, he was sentenced to death by public hanging scheduled to take place on Christmas Day 1992. Pastor Wallys is a remarkable testimony of Gods provision and deliverance for a man whose only desire was to bring the Good News of Gods love to one of the least reached and darkest nations in the world.
Pastor Wally knows what it means to be persecuted. His presentation and testimony brings an increased awareness to the plight of Christians in crisis around the world. His witness is a call to every Christian to be informed, be concerned, be involved, and be a part of the Body of Christ that responds to the cries and the needs of those who share our faith but not our freedom.
