But, “we got an email from a man [who] asked for 1,000 [Scripture] booklets that he could share,” says Helen Williams of World Missionary Press.
“I don’t know how he found us – whether or not he found a booklet, or whether he looked online – but he did.”
World Missionary Press prints and sends Scripture booklets in 345 languages to Gospel staff all over the world. Be taught extra about WMP right here. Nonetheless, Williams says they don’t have any distribution companions in Afghanistan, so this man’s request stood out.
She shares a portion of the person’s electronic mail under:
“It’s about 5 years that I’m following Jesus and learning Christ¬ianity. I just download some topics from the internet and translate in my own language, then spread [it] between the followers who need God’s words… I’m very careful and hidden doing this holy job for Christ because I know He loves me as I love Him.”
“We were a little skeptical and we checked that (address) again… a couple of months later, we got another email” from the person who requested the booklets, Williams says.
“He wanted us to know that 1,000 booklets were being read and had been distributed in his community.”
Why does this matter?
Afghanistan’s intense oppression of Christians might classify this man’s actions as both insane – or extremely daring. If officers uncover Afghan residents exploring any religion moreover Islam – i.e. visiting web site, cellphone calls, emails – the ensuing punishment will be loss of life.
“Afghan Christians (mostly those with a Muslim background) are in hiding as much as possible… Very often, there is only one possible outcome for exposed and caught Christians: they will be killed.”
Regardless of the chance, Afghans are turning to Christ. As described right here by Prayercast, a long time of extremist violence have brought about many Muslims to query their religion. Although they’ve to assemble in secret, there are literally thousands of believers and the Afghan Church is rising.
Reward God for enabling His Phrase to go forth in Afghanistan! Pray hearts and lives will change as individuals encounter His reality, and ask the Lord to proceed opening doorways of alternative.
“We were able to get a lot of material in… years ago when the US military moved into that area, but not anymore,” Williams says.
“[Getting] 1,000 booklets into a village or city in Afghanistan is another miracle, and we were just blessed.”
