Few of us in this country know what it is like to suffer persecution for our faith. That should not make us feel guilty. It isn’t where God has called us. However, He has called us to, “Remember those in prison as if you were their fellow prisoners, and those who are mistreated as if you yourselves were suffering.” (Hebrews 13:3)
I have a special interest in the Muslim world. Maybe it is because I live in NYC where the Muslim population is growing rapidly. I live within five miles of Bay Ridge, Brooklyn, and Atlantic Avenue. Both of these neighborhoods have large Muslim communities with mosques, schools, and shops in full swing. While military might can keep the threat of Islam, and jihad at bay, only Christian evangelization will stop it. I will write more on this in an upcoming post.
In the meantime, our brothers and sisters, who love God in hostile places need help.
“Secret Believers is an open doorway into the lives of actual Christians living in hiding because they have been disowned, attacked, and threatened by family and friends. These Secret Believers live in the Muslim world. They are real people with hurts, desires, and hopes just like you. This website is your opportunity to cross borders into a hostile land and minister to isolated, suffering Christians. At SecretBelievers.org, you’ll not only meet Secret Believers, but you’ll be able to write them a letter. A Secret Believer will tap into the website and share with you urgent prayer needs. When breaking news hits and the persecuted Church is under pressure, you’ll be informed immediately about what you can do. (Learn more and become a member here.)
