Strengthen persecuted believers byproviding them with the Word of God!
There are 245 million believers who are suffering from extreme levels of persecution. For these brothers and sisters, the Bible is a vital source of strength. For many, just owning a Bible puts their lives at risk. In spite of opposition, persecuted believers ask for only two things: your prayers and a Bible of their own.
A Bible is just $5.
Strengthen persecuted believers through the Word of God
So with you: Now is your time of grief, but I will see you again and you will rejoice, and no one will take away your joy.
John 16:22 NIV
Sa’aada was in different country because her sick father needed better care. She sat in the hospital waiting room, paging through magazines she could not read to pass the time. Underneath the magazines she discovered a book that was in her own language, a Bible!
In her country, the Bible is forbidden. But she wasn’t at home, so her curiosity overruled her fear. Sa’aada quickly tucked the Bible into her bag.
While waiting for her father to recover, Sa’aada read chapter after chapter of the Bible. The Good News of Jesus Christ caused her heart to sing. She knew that Jesus was who she was meant to follow.
She tried to keep her Bible hidden at home but one day her husband found it. And when she would not give it up, he took their two daughters in a rage, and left. He even threatened to report her to the courts where she could be stoned to death. When Sa’aada’s own family found out, her brothers beat her and her parents stopped speaking to her.
God connected Sa’aada to a network of other believers that meet together to support each other. They are overjoyed to have Sa’aada join them: she is one of the few who has a Bible. Together, they reach out to their community, but it is difficult to help others grow in faith without the Word of God.
Imagine the impact you will have on persecuted believers like Sa’aada. Please give generously.
