Our brothers and sisters in Central Asia continue to follow Jesus faithfully in spite of greater and greater pressure from their governments. These are Jesus-followers who worship in small house churches, seeking to spread the good news of Jesus while being sought by secret police. Believers are arrested and their homes are raided and computers are taken, in a search for names of more people to arrest. In jail they are beaten; governments often fine them large amounts of money.Meanwhile these amazing people continue to follow Jesus and share him with others. Their word to us has been, “Don’t pray that we won’t suffer, but that we will be faithful.” I can’t help but pray both ways! Would you join me in those prayers?
We give thanks for your support that has enabled us to help sponsor training for their lay leaders and evangelists, as well as some programs of outreach. May God use these efforts to increase the harvest, and may he sustain our brothers and sisters!
