Jordan

While Jordan claims religious freedom, a Muslim-based belief system places limitations on Christian living. Churches are monitored by secret police and distributing Christian materials is restricted. Despite this, God is using Jordan’s unique location to provide a safe haven for persecuted Christians fleeing volatile neighbouring countries.

Story

“God wants me to be strong and courageous in reaching out to others.” – Rami* from Jordan.

Rami (25) joined a Bible study group supported by Open Doors, with the intention of convincing others to reject God. However, Rami was so impacted by the love and joy shown to him that he turned his life around and decided to serve Jesus.

Our Work

Through our local partners Open Doors is supporting the church in Jordan by providing biblical training, emergency relief, and rehabilitation for persecuted believers.

Pray for Jordan

Pray for Christians to withstand the pressure to return to Islam.

Pray that the firm faith of believers will be a testimony of Jesus to the Muslim communities around them.
