Believers Face Poverty and Death for the Sake of Christ (Ghana)

Saturday, August 4, 2001 | , Tag Cloud

A recent VOM report from Ghana tells of the needs faced by our Christian brothers and sisters who face persecution from animists and Muslims in the countryside. Recently VOM workers had to disguise themselves as they traveled into one region, as the local people view strangers with great suspicion. Believers there face being killed by their neighbours. They live in great poverty and have not nearly enough Bibles for the number of Christians. Bibles, Bible portions and Christian literature in the local language are smuggled into the area by Ghanaian believers at great risk. Recently 32 Christians were sent out of the region by pastoral leadership for fear that they might be killed because of their conversion to Christianity.

Pray for the work of The Voice of the Martyrs and its sister missions in Ghana. Pray that more Bibles and other Christian literature will be able to be provided for the believers there. Pray, too, that the Ghanaian believers will know God’s strength as they face tremendous struggles because of their faith.
