Afghan Christians face oppression, persecution and even death because of their Christian faith. And yet they continue to share the love of Christ with those around them - even their persecutors! You can help.

Dear Friend,

As the Taliban retook control of Afghanistan, many Christians made the courageous decision to remain in the country as witnesses to Christ. Today, these brothers and sisters in Christ need our help.

“There are still thousands of followers of Jesus in Afghanistan,” a front-line worker said.

These faithful believers are working to advance God’s kingdom at great personal risk, as economic instability and uncertainty have left many Afghans desperate for hope.

Your online gift will encourage and equip these steadfast believers as they risk their lives to proclaim the gospel of Christ.

“Recently, some Afghan families heard the gospel and have become followers of Christ … through local believers,” the front-line worker said. “Because of the oppressiveness and because of the desperation, … [Afghan Christians] have had multiple opportunities to share, to be salt and light, to serve, to give food, to reach out in practical, tangible ways but then slowly talk about the Good News and how they have discovered eternal life through Jesus Christ.”

You can be a part of reaching the lost in Afghanistan while encouraging our brothers and sisters in Christ to continue boldly proclaiming the gospel to their neighbors.

First, you can pray. Here are three specific ways to pray for Afghan believers:
  • Pray that Christians in Afghanistan will experience the joy of the Lord even amid suffering.
  • Pray that they will experience God’s peace and provision.
  • Pray that they will have opportunities to share the love of Christ with their neighbors and that members of the Taliban will repent and place their faith in the one true God.
Next, you can support our persecuted Christian family in Afghanistan by giving to help meet their needs.

Your gift may be used to help those who have been persecuted for their faith, to replace Bibles destroyed by persecutors, or to equip front-line workers with tools to help them advance God’s kingdom in Afghanistan and among Afghan refugees in nearby, predominantly Muslim nations.

Support Afghan Christians

In Christ,
