Christian workers report several encouraging developments in the difficult mission field of Afghanistan.
Though Christian faith was once more prominent in the country, most Afghans today have never heard the Gospel, do not know a Christian and have been raised since birth to pursue an unquestioned allegiance to Mohammed’s teachings. Local and national governments are highly antagonistic toward Christians. Extremist groups, including the Taliban and ISIS, are active, and believers are persecuted by their families, friends and communities.
However, God is at work in this nation. Seven new believers formed a house church after being baptised recently, translators are working on three new Bible projects for minority languages, and followers of Christ are now present in every one of Afghanistan’s 34 provinces.
Prayer is still greatly needed for Afghan believers, for the spread of the Gospel in Afghanistan and for the estimated 40 million unreached Pashtun people worldwide.
