HELPING PERSECUTED CHRISTIANS
Most of us watched the fall of Afghanistan with horror. While news outlets have moved onto other stories, a lingering crisis has deepened as Afghan Christians continue to go through a time of severe persecution—living with the knowledge that each day could be their last. At the time of writing this, according to Open Doors Watchlist, Afghanistan is now the second most difficult place in the world to follow Jesus—only eclipsed by North Korea. But we can help! As members of the body of Christ, we are called to bear one another’s burdens.
We aren’t sure how long the borders will remain open or how long we’ll have this opportunity to serve underground believers. For many Afghan Christians, this may be the only Bible and teaching they can access for years. Since Afghan believers are forced to worship in secret, they’re often separated from their pastors. These audio bibles can bring comfort and strength to our brothers and sisters through the Word of God, Bible stories, sermons, worship songs, and other resources.
For only $35 we can deliver an entire library of audio content to strengthen Christian families and churches. On average, a single audio bible will serve 10-15 people for many years—which is vital as we look to help persecuted believers grow as disciples—even while they are forced to worship in secret.
As Afghan Christians go through a time of severe persecution, you can bring the hope of God’s Word! The need is great, but our God is faithful! We believe that He will make provision for thousands of MegaVoice audio bibles to minister to Afghan Christians—both inside the country and to refugees in neighboring countries. So far we have received funding for the first 1,000 players to be distributed into Afghanistan. Praise the Lord! Now we’re trying to raise an additional $34,000 to send another 1,000 audio Bibles.
