3700 Haralan Popov Part 2 (Persecution, Perseverance, Hope) At 4am, Pastor Haralan Popov was awakened from his sleep by three police officers who ransacked his house, then kidnapped him from his wife and two young children. He was sentenced to prison 15 years hard labor. His crime: He refused to bow to Communism. He stood for Christ. But now he faced torture and death. Would the faith he preached from the pulpit stand the hardest trial of his life? It does and he becomes an advocate and starts a ministry for other brothers and sisters being persecuted for their faith.
