Faith Over Fear: Despite Taliban Persecution, Christianity Continues to Grow in Central Asia Through Radio Broadcasts

As the Taliban works to tighten its grip on Afghanistan, Christians are facing intensified persecution in this predominately Muslim region. Many Christians are attempting to join the sea of refugees escaping the war-torn country but are forced to remain in hiding due to restrictive Taliban persecution. A representative of the Taliban even went so far as to claim, “There are no Christians in Afghanistan. Christian minority has never been known or registered here.”

Despite the oppression, and even as the Taliban denies the very existence of Christians in Afghanistan, we are encouraged to know that our radio show, ‘Window of Love,’ is continuing to reach the lost in Afghanistan and the surrounding region in a powerful way and that many lives are being impacted by the Gospel message. We believe, because this is an area of such extreme persecution, radio may be the only, and safest, way for people to learn about the saving love of Christ.

We call on all Christians to ask God to protect these new believers and to open the door for fellow Christians to provide spiritual encouragement and support. We also pray that these new believers are able to stand strong in their faith and that their response will be a testimony that demonstrates the love of God to those who are persecuting them. We fervently hope that this persecution does not discourage others from responding to the Gospel messages we are broadcasting in this region.

Would you consider helping make a difference in the lives of the Afghan people through your gifts and through prayer? YOUR support means so much to the ministry and those who benefit from our broadcasts, and for that we are grateful.
