This month we'd like to encourage you to pray for the church in Afghanistan. Here is a quote from Open Doors on the current situation in this country:
Because all Christians in Afghanistan are essentially converts, they are unable to express their faith, even in private. In many cases, upon being discovered, these converts are considered insane for leaving Islam. If they cannot be convinced to return to their former faith, they are sometimes committed to psychiatric institutions. Others experience loss of personal property and businesses, beatings and even death at the hands of their own family members and communities. Knowing this, believers risk everything when telling others about Christ, also endangering those they witness to. Afghanistan Christian Persecution is a tragic tale that is both old and new and seemingly not going anywhere.
