This is our last Mission Focus for 2021. Stay tuned for our next Mission Focus in January!
Mission focus for October - Open Doors
Every day, millions of Christians risk their lives to follow Jesus. In more than 60 countries, Open Doors supports them by supplying Bibles, providing emergency relief and helping persecuted believers stand strong for the long-term. In the UK and Ireland, Open Doors helps the church to pray, give and speak out for those who share our faith but not our freedom.
2020 was a truly extraordinary year for all of us. Covid-19 has changed all our lives – but our persecuted family have been hit particularly hard, with many Christians finding themselves last in line for government aid and others facing increased violence and pressure during lockdown. Yet despite the economic challenges presented by Covid restrictions, income for the year grew by an incredible 32 per cent, enabling our Field teams to bring emergency Covid aid to vulnerable believers with no other means of support, while continuing to strengthen believers for whom persecution and discrimination is simply a daily reality.
