What “powers” the persecuted Church?

Dear Friend,

One of Liberty Relief International’s (LRI) Christ-centered partners shared a startling statistic last week. At least 200 million Christians are being persecuted for their faith worldwide! That’s an amazing number of people suffering for Jesus around the globe.

It made my staff wonder aloud, “What powers the persecuted Church?” What makes so many THOUSANDS of men and women willingly turn their backs on long-held Muslim beliefs — risking family, relationships, property, and even their very lives — to embrace faith in Jesus Christ? It’s an awesome truth about today’s MIRACLE HARVEST in the Middle East.

“For to me to live is Christ, and to die is gain” (Phil. 1:21).

Believers with Muslim backgrounds are finding Jesus in countries like Iraq, Syria and Egypt — among others. In the face of ISIS evil, devastating civil war and incredible persecution, God is at work, drawing all people to Himself (John 12:32).

But there’s still an urgent need for Bibles to help support this MIRACLE HARVEST of souls. As I’ve shared previously,if active discipleship is not provided to Muslim new believers within six months to a year after they convert, 75 percent of them return to Islam.

Liberty Relief International doesn’t want to see that happen. You can help make sure it doesn’t by supporting our efforts to help “feed” God’s Word to persecuted Christians, Muslim new believers, and spiritual seekers in the Middle East. Click here to help now.

LRI’s Christ-centered partner in the Middle East can provide refugees with their own personal copy of God’s Word for just $5 each. Please help put a Bible into the hands of a persecuted Christian, new believer, or spiritual seeker.

LRI has heard repeatedly that Muslims leaving Islam and embracing faith in Christ desperately need Bibles. That’s why I’m convinced the “Western Church” MUST do something to help these brothers and sisters grow in their faith!

Will you please help feed the Word of God to persecuted Christians, new believers, and spiritual seekers? You can sponsor Bibles by making your best tax-deductible gift now. Click here to donate.

Thank you, in advance, for bringing the light of Christ to dark places.


P.S. Again, it costs our Christ-centered partner in the Middle East about $5 to get a Bible into the hands of someone who wants to know more about Jesus. Your gift of $50 or $100, right now, can make an eternal impact.
