Thousands of Muslims are coming to Christ!

Liberty Relief International received an urgent plea for help yesterday that I need to share with you. One of our Christ-centered partners serving on the frontlines in the Middle East wrote this:

Despite the increasing conflict we see intensifying in places like Syria, Nigeria and Egypt, and all over the Middle East, God is at work in a powerful way. Thousands of Muslims are coming to Christ! And when a Muslim is seeking to know about Jesus, they come to us in search of a Bible.

Violent and deadly attacks

LRI logo: Click here to help.

Violent and deadly attacks against Christians are occuring on a global scale. In fact, the amount of persecution we're witnessing is unprecedented in some countries. While the Western Church remains well insulated and protected from much of the suffering, oppression and brutality, believers in other parts of the world urgently need our support!

Liberty Relief International wants to help persecuted brothers and sisters grow their faith by sponsoring efforts to feed them the Word of God.

Most Dangerous Book In The World

Countless persecuted believers around the world are praying for a copy of God's Word to encourage and strengthen them in their faith. Recently, I received the update below from a Christ-centered partner highlighting the critical need for discipleship resources in the Middle East and elsewhere:

"(I)n many parts of the world, the most dangerous book is the Bible. Yet believers are risking everything to possess a copy of God's Word and share this treasure with others. Getting a copy of the Bible is difficult, and watching eyes are everywhere. … Our brothers and sisters live in some of the most difficult places in the world to follow Jesus, but you can help refresh them spiritually in their time of need."

We've also learned that "hearts are open like never before" to receive God's Word. For example...

Christians Raped And Murdered!

I recently received a shocking and disturbing email about fellow believers who recently came under attack in South Sudan. Soldiers from the Sudan People's Liberation Army raided a Christian college and began breaking doors and windows. They forced their way into houses and looted the compound. Two of them raped the 14-year-old daughter of a staff member.

Later that day at a nearby primary school, the same group of soldiers killed five school children, three staff members and two other people. But the horror didn't end there. Our Christ-centered partner in the region reports:

Report: Believers returning to Islam

The statistic is alarming, which is why I feel led to share it with you again today. If new believers with Muslim backgrounds don't receive active discipleship within six to 12 months of their conversion, 75 percent of them return to Islam. It's shocking, really. Three out of four reject Christ within the first year!

Something I Can't Imagine

Can you imagine what your Christian life would be like without having a Bible nearby? I certainly can't. I have one nearby everywhere I go -- because I can -- and, more importantly because I need it. It is my go-to resource for life, truth, wisdom, hope, encouragement, spiritual renewal, and so much more.

And that's why I find it hard to imagine how new converts to Christ in Muslim strongholds of the Middle East keep their faith growing without access to the Word of God.

Convert...Or Die!

On May 26, 2017 — almost exactly one year ago — ISIS gunmen in Egypt opened fire on vehicles carrying Christians to Friday services at a monastery. The vicious attack, which occurred on the first day of Ramadan, injured 23 and killed 29. Elderly believers and children were among the dead.

One of our Christ-centered partners in the Middle East recently spoke to the family of a husband and father murdered in the terror attack. The man's 10-year-old son witnessed the execution. "The terrorist shouted he had to convert to Islam," the boy recalled.
