The equipping of the saints is of great importance in strengthening and expanding the kingdom of God, particularly in nations where the Gospel is opposed. Bible schools and discipleship centres are a crucial part.
Within restricted countries, faith-based learning is often outlawed and the authorities go to great lengths to eradicate Christian places of learning. Many of our most successful learning centres are now homes of fellow believers and as in one story, an apartment where every bit of space is utilised.
Around the world, new believers are hungry for the Word of God and go to extreme lengths to obtain it. Beyond Bibles, other forms of Christian literature are just as precious. Supplying such material to places like China, North Korea and many other countries is crucial, and creative methods are often needed. I mention China and North Korea because the regimes which exist there are using very sophisticated means of tracking people’s movements and activities which has resulted in thousands of believers being imprisoned or held in labour camps.
Your support of our Front Line Ministry projects enables us to equip those who are reaching the lost, including their persecutors.
The impact that Bible schools have in educating and equipping those who face persecution is immeasurable. Many testify how knowledge of the Word has sustained them through trials, and helped them overcome the daily reality that they and their families may suffer for their faith.
Please continue to pray for those on the frontline as Voice of the Martyrs endeavours to increase our support of those most vulnerable to persecution in the fight to carry out the Great Commission.
“From whom the whole body, joined and knit together by what every joint supplies, according to the effective working by which every part does its share, causes growth of the body for
the edifying of itself in love” Ephesians 4:16.
