No longer seeing Central African Republic (‪#‎CAR‬) featured in the headlines of world news might cause one to think that the suffering of the people has been eliminated.

But that is not the case.

Many ‪#‎Christians‬ are victims of violence and many are ‪#‎refugees‬ who need food and shelter in the still violent country. Though these believers suffer, they are holding onto the Lord and have not lost hope for deliverance.

An Open Doors colleague says: “The simple fact that some pastors continue to preach Christ and worship Him is very encouraging. They were so enthusiastic in their singing and dancing; so full of joy and praying to God for peace and deliverance. I saw the determination of these persecuted Christians.”

#‎Christians‬ in ‪#‎Myanmar‬ face uphill battles daily.

About 90% of this nation’s population practices ‪#‎Buddhism‬, while only 4% are believed to be Christian. Buddhist extremists persecute minorities, and this often means Christians face starvation, beatings and church burnings.

Check out our new video that explains how you can play a part in empowering believers in #Myanmar!

This little girl belongs to the rural #Uyghur people group in #China. The government officials in the countryside where she lives uphold #Communist #oppression by not allowing churches.

Please join us in #prayer for this primarily Muslim people group, and especially for Uyghur Christians.

"I didn’t have the courage to reach out to others for #Christ, and felt unequipped to meet and #disciple other women.

This has been an answer to my #prayers. I will be learning together with other women who are as hungry for the Lord. I pray that #God will help me mature in Him, so I may help my husband in his ministry, and disciple the women in our #church."

Please join us in praying for women, like Priyanti (a pastor’s wife), attending Open Doors training in #Bangladesh.

"Every Christian in #NorthKorea has accepted the spirit of #martyrdom. Everyone who comes to #faith knows that sometime a day will come when it will be shown whether this faith is steadfast. Then the person will be tortured and put under pressure to deny the faith. This is the sword that hangs over every #Christian in North Korea."

#Pakistani Christian Aasiya Noreen (known as #AsiaBibi) has been allowed to take her appeal against her death penalty for #blasphemy to #Pakistan's Supreme Court in the capital of Islamabad. Until the Supreme Court reaches its final decision, Bibi cannot be executed. That is the bottom line of the decision today.

Some commentators are calling it a “historic day for Pakistan.”

This is what church looks like in northern #Nigeria.
 
Although #BokoHaram rages all around them and terrorizes village after village, we see them praising #Jesus with great JOY!
 
#Romans 15:13 says, “May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.” AMEN!

Serving persecuted Christians worldwide
Introduction

For almost 60 years Open Doors has worked in the world's most oppressive and restrictive countries, strengthening Christians to stand strong in the face of persecution and equipping them to shine Christ's light in these places. When Christians are strengthened in the Lord, they begin to demonstrate God's forgiveness and reach out in love, even to their oppressors.

One of the greatest challenges to Christians living under oppression is isolation - from God's word and from the body of Christ.

1 Corinthians 12:26 says “If one member suffers, all suffer together; if one member is honored, all rejoice together.”

Open Doors empowers persecuted Christians by supplying Bibles and Christian literature, training Christian leaders, facilitating social/economic projects and uniting believers in the West in prayer for Christians, who are the most persecuted religious group in the world and are oppressed in at least 60 countries.
