We are excited to let you know of an opportunity to support Kingdom work in the Central Asia Area and to have your gift amount doubled.
We have a generous donor who has promised to match dollar for dollar the amount we raise for our Ministry Partner, Roshan Life, up to $7,000. This donor will match the amount we raise by giving the same amount himself to another Central Asian Ministry, the Alatoo Community Development. Both Alatoo and Roshan Life reach their neighbors with the Gospel of Jesus Christ through community development. In this region of the World government authorities heavily monitor churches and target religious minorities, especially Christians, who seek to share their faith.
To reach their neighbors, Alatoo’s Community Health Education (CHE) teams develop relationships with key leaders from strategic villages within their region. They guide them in developing their own goals and projects as they help identify issues and mobilize resources to achieve positive sustainable change. The team also addresses spiritual needs and builds relationships when giving moral values and health lessons as part of their program. Through these God-centered CHE programs, lives and communities are transformed as as opposition to Christians are broken down and relationships are established.
Roshan Life reaches many people within their region with the Good News using a similarly practical approach of CHE, Bridges for Neighbors (an oral Bible storying strategy) and starting primary schools in remote areas. Roshan Life’s ministry leader, Samuel, was recently in the USA and it was an honor and pleasure to get to know him personally and to introduce him to fellow followers of Christ. Please pray that God would strengthen the believers in Central Asia and work mightily through them despite the increasing persecution.
Please consider a one-time gift so that we can leverage this matching opportunity for multiplied Kingdom impact in Central Asia. A total of $14,000 will go to the work of our ministry partners if we are able to raise the full $7,000 from supporters like you.
