I do not normally post items such as this but the Father has given me a tenderness of heart toward the ministry that follows and the work they do with the underground Christian churches in the Middle East and surrounding regions. Did you know that Afghanistan is home to the second largest Underground Christian Church, second to Iran? If you haven’t heard, nations are falling, but the underground church cannot! Regardless of your beliefs we must link, arm in arm, with our brothers and sisters across the globe, during this most volatile time! (Lebanon is in utter disarray. South Africa as well.)
Do you know that with the fall of this nation to the Taliban, every single one of these brothers and sisters are being sought out, ultimately to be killed?
I follow Frontier Alliance International (FAI) Ministries, who does extreme work with the underground churches in the Middle East and the surrounding regions. Today I received the following in an email from them. Please, if nothing else, pray, pray, pray, for the protection of the Afghani Believers, U.S. citizens on the ground and the protection of those walking alongside them trying to help!
Please pray for the Afghan Church to have strength and endurance. They continue to lead Bible studies, prayer meetings, and are proactively evangelizing during the very events you are seeing in the news. Pray for them to be hidden supernaturally by the hand of the Lord just like in John 8:59 when Jesus disappeared into the crowd.
The Afghan Church and GCM believe that the best days are before us, and we will witness the greatest movement of salvation among Muslims from the ashes of this catastrophe.
- Pray for those fleeing to the hills to be protected (Psalm 73, Psalm 91)
- Pray for miraculous protection for women and children being forcibly taken and those that have already been taken for their protection, salvation, and deliverance. (2 Thessalonians 3:1-5)
- Pray that the Afghan Church steps into her identity in Christ and walks in unity with the Holy Spirit. (Ezekiel 37, Romans 15:5-6)
We are storing up a “war chest” for our believers. It will include emergency funds and supplies to help get them to safety, to assist in relocation, and for the medical and physical needs of the families. These believers that have fled to the mountains currently need essential supplies of food, water, and basic vitamins.
Between now and 9/11 of this year, an anniversary marked by the Taliban having clinched total control over Afghanistan, we are raising $500K to serve and support a network of 1500+ Afghani families and ministry partners committed to serving their communities with basic needs (food, water, shelter) through the uncertain days and months ahead. We have already begun mobilization. Get involved today.
