Yosemite New Life Church in Oakhurst will be showing the movie, “Tortured for Christ,” the story of Romanian Pastor Richard Wurmbrand who suffered 14 years of imprisonment and brutal torture after Russian Communists invaded his country. Wurmbrand’s wife, Sabrina, was treated as a slave in a labor camp for a time during her husband’s incarceration. The couple’s only “crimes” were their faith and witness for Jesus Christ. Through it all, they loved their enemies and sought to win their torturers for Christ.
The church is located at 40390 Junction Dr., Oakhurst.
