A frontline worker who spent years living in Afghanistan says it is a dangerous time for believers in the country but that God is working in spite of the Taliban advance.
The frontline worker said believers inside the country are making different choices: some have fled the country, some are in hiding and some are choosing to stay in order to be a light. Believers are receiving threats, and several have been targeted.

“Our big concern is that God will give them the grace to weather the suffering and the persecution,”
the frontline worker said, and also reminded believers in the West that the majority people group in Afghanistan, the Pashtun, are an unreached people group who desperately need to hear the Gospel. “We can pray that God is going to use this and is going to advance His kingdom and further the Gospel,” the worker said.
Let us pray.
- Pray for the protection and provision for those who are in hiding. May they feel the Lord’s presence and trust in His promises.
- Ask the Lord to use this time of fear and uncertainty to bring a softening of hearts towards the Gospel.
- Pray there will be opportunities for Christians to meet to encourage one another in the faith.
