Not many women have their faith tested like Sabina Wurmbrand. Her husband, Pastor Richard Wurmbrand, was imprisoned and tortured for his faith for fourteen years.

During that time,Sabina selflessly helped other Christians of the Underground Church they had started together while struggling hard for her own and her little son’s survival.


Sabina was subjected to unbelievable hardships and suffering. Yet, through it all, she never relented in her endeavours to continue the work her husband had begun, to unite the Underground Church.

Living in daily fear of discovery, her faith was tested to the limit–and held firm.

She herself was arrested for subversive evangelism in 1948 in Romania and spent three years as a slave labourer on the never-completed Danube Canal. Nevertheless, she survived to tell her story.
