Change Their Story
You are probably aware of the persecution against Christians in many parts of the world. But did you know that Christian women are two times more susceptible to persecution because of their gender?
Young Christian girls in rural Egypt are abducted by Muslim extremists, and then forced to convert to Islam and marry much older Muslim men. They may also face sexual harassment from their Muslim employers at work, even rape.
When these events have happened, the girls are too ashamed to seek help from anyone, and many have chosen to die rather than live with the shame.
We want to change these stories of shame and tragedy into stories of strength and victory in Christ.
Will you join us in changing the stories of persecuted Christian women, and give to support them?
Your gift will enable us to hold trauma counselling workshops for those who have experienced violence, provide a safe and encouraging space for women to share and grow together, provide necessities to widows, as well as train them to minister to other women.
Please indicate “For Women” in the Comments box in the donation form for your gift to go directly to the women of the persecuted church. Otherwise, your donation will go to where most needed.
*Please also note that when the project is fully funded, your donation will go to where most needed.
SEND FOOD TO NORTH KOREA
With the release of the 2019 World Watch List, it is clear that persecuted Christians are facing unprecedented pressure for their faith, and the need is greater than ever.
There was a great famine in North Korea in the 1990s. Today, the situation has not changed much. Even though food can be bought on the black market, it is too expensive for normal citizens to afford. There are sthousands of Christians living in North Korea suffering now from both hunger and persecution for their faith.
“Please do not reduce the amount of food you send us,” church leaders tell us. “You don’t know what it is like to go hungry.”
