The Half Yearly Challenge

View All Blogs
By Beth Ross | 13 June 2018

In 2018 your support has brought much-needed funds to the five most difficult countries on the planet to be a Christian - North Korea, Afghanistan, Somalia, Sudan and Pakistan.

Your donations are currently on the ground, helping build the Church and advance the gospel.

Your 2018 Impact So Far

Here’s how your help has made a difference in 2018:

  • You’ve sent almost 1,000 Bibles to churches in Asia.
  • You have supported and strengthened 20 martyr’s widows in Kenya.
  • You’re continuing to train pastors living in countries that are closed to the gospel.
  • You’ve provided practical support to those suffering for their faith in Africa.


You’re also discipling new Christians from a Muslim background.

“I couldn’t read or write, but now I can read the Bible for myself,” said one new believer from a Muslim background.

“Every day I see more of the Truth that has been hidden from me all these years in Islam.”  

Thank you so much for your continued generosity.

The Work Continues!

We need to raise $750,000 between now and 30 June on behalf of the persecuted church.

Currently, some of our European bases are being forced by their governments to hold back money from the field, in order to meet increased security obligations. 

This means there is a shortfall in funding for the persecuted church in some of the most difficult countries to follow Jesus.

If you find yourself in a position to give a little extra at this time of year, your generosity would go a long way!

Can you help?
