According to Open Doors World Watch List*, 100 million Believers in Jesus Christ have been persecuted for their faith.
In America, we take religious freedom for granted. We totally do.
Imagine being a Christian but not having a Bible to study the Word of God.
Imagine not having the freedom to walk with your God.
Imagine living in fear of being persecuted for believing differently than the government tells you to believe.
Imagine being beaten, whipped, stoned to death, thrown in jail, or executed for believing in the one true God.
Yet, this is the reality for Christian believers around the world. The top 10 offending nations are in Asia where Christians and missionaries face persecution every day. It’s their way of life.
They risk their life for Christ. Daily.
Can you imagine that? I can’t, because I have never had to live it. Our family owns 6 Bibles. Six.
Without a Bible, Christians in these countries find it hard to study the Word, walk in the Word, and live in the Word. Their faith-walk is limited.
Gospel for Asia is helping to change all that. A donation to GFA will give bibles to missionaries to share with believers in Christ and give necessary tools to teach the Word. A donation of $3 buys one Bible, $96 buys 32 Bibles.
Won’t you join me in sharing the Good News with those who have never heard of God’s great love? Learn more about GFA bringing the Gospel to South Asia and donate here.
