This year, Voice of the Martyrs partnered with World Compassion in supplying Bibles to Iran and discipleship training to China.
In Iran, Christian websites are blocked and there is no access to the Bible online. Christians and curious Muslims want the written Word of God to develop their faith or explore it for the first time, even though they can be placed in jail for owning a Bible.
Bibles are smuggled into a central city in Iran and distributed through underground church networks all over the country.
The church in China is under some of the greatest persecution in the past 50 years. In spite of this, thousands of Chinese are converting to Christianity each day. There is need to train more leaders to provide discipleship and continue advancing the underground church.
ABC is a church-based training module which provides discipleship training to Christians in the underground church throughout China.
