Stand with your persecuted brothers and sisters

Our Christian brothers and sisters are under attack.

Global persecution against Christ-followers is at an all time high. In fact, some scholars estimate more Christians have been martyred in the past 100 years than in every previous century combined!

Most of us have had to sacrifice very little for our faith. But men and women in places like North Korea, Nigeria, and China are being asked to sacrifice all — even their lives. The least we can do is help them.

They desperately need our prayers. But they also need physical help. And for just $50, you can help meet the most urgent needs of a persecuted Christian. Your gift will provide aid such as medical care, food, relocation costs, legal assistance, and more.

Nasim is a good example of a persecuted brother or sister you can help today. I’ve changed his name to protect his identity because he has been through worse persecution than you or I can even imagine.

Nasim was beaten, left for dead, and unjustly arrested … all because he is a Christian.

He was a taxi driver in Iraq. One day, he discovered one of his regular customers had converted from Islam to Christianity. Eager to help this new sister in Christ grow in her faith, Nasim gave her his own Bible.

But her family found it … and saw Nasim’s name engraved on the cover.

The girl’s family was furious! They called Nasim, pretending to be customers who needed a taxi in a remote, deserted part of town. When he arrived, they stabbed him over and over and left him there to die.

A Good Samaritan found Nasim and brought him to the hospital. He needed 22 stitches to close his wounds — all without painkillers because he couldn’t afford them.

But Nasim’s troubles weren’t over yet. When the girl’s family heard he was still alive, they bribed the police to arrest him on false accusations.

Nasim didn’t have money to pay for a lawyer or post bail, so he remained in jail for an entire year … all because he tried to share the Gospel with one person.

For believers like Nasim, Jesus is worth any risk! They can’t help but follow Him and share the good news of salvation with others … even if it means putting their lives in danger.

You may not be asked to give your life for Jesus today. But He is calling you to help those who are.

Hebrews 13:3 says, “Remember those who are in prison, as though in prison with them, and those who are mistreated, since you also are in the body.”

As you read this, Christians are being persecuted, hurt, and imprisoned. Many — like Nasim — can’t afford their medical bills or legal fees. But you can help! In a believer’s most desperate time of need, you can be the answer to his prayers for just $50.

When one part of the body of Christ suffers, we all suffer.

That’s why it’s so important to pray for these individuals and send urgent physical help today. You can assure them they are not alone and forgotten.

You can prevent a Christian from spending years in jail or dying a painful death without medicine. You can literally save a life.

Please give today to help a brother or sister suffering from persecution.
