Every year, 200 million Christians face persecution – but the press is silent about them. Therefore, many pastors and lay people don't even know that there is a war being waged on the church worldwide.
ICC is like no other group helping persecuted Christians today.
We go where no one else can or will go, where missionaries know they will be murdered.
We work underground with indigenous Christians who have already put their lives on the altar knowing they may be killed for what they do.
When a pastor is murdered, we rescue his family, getting them to a safe place with food and shelter and the ability to provide for themselves for the long term.
When a church is attacked, we help to get it back up and functioning.
We work in the most dangerous places in the world including Afghanistan, Nigeria's Middle Belt, and even North Korea.
Months before the American withdrawal from Afghanistan, we were rescuing Christians behind the scenes. We knew what was coming and we removed some of the most vulnerable Christians.
Since the fall of Kabul, our work goes on.
For those who escape we will be there. For those who stay, we will help them hide and also to spread the faith for those know they have the message of life for the dead and dying around them.
But the total cost for rescue and ongoing care for these survivors in Afghanistan alone will be well over $1 million, and we're going to need all the help we can get.
So please, if you are able, donate $30 today to help us provide hope for persecuted Christians around the world.
Persecution is a complex problem that can't be solved with just a handout, so we go deeper.
Most organizations "parachute in" during a crisis. They throw money around and then leave when the headlines dry up.
That's not ICC. We stick with persecution victims and work with them for the long term.
We don't simply offer a bandage to "the wound" of persecution. We seek to break the cycle of persecution entirely.
Will you donate just $30 today to provide us with the resources we desperately need to bandage the survivors of persecution or to build the church in the toughest places in the world?
In Afghanistan, $1000 allows us to care for a Christian family rescued from being murdered by the Taliban, but we help victims of persecution all over the world.
- In Nigeria, Islamists steal the land of farmers at gunpoint. For only $30 we can get that farmer back to farming and feeding his family again.
- In India, $100 allows us to equip a church planter with a new bicycle that will double or triple the number of churches he can plant.
- In North Korea, $200 allows us to send multiple Gospel messages in via radio.
I know you can't walk into a village in India to supply a church planter with a new bicycle or 100 Bibles.
You can't rescue a pastor in Afghanistan about to be murdered by the Taliban or stream the Gospel into North Korea.
But working together, you and I can do all this and more!
Your donation of $30 or more today could literally save the life of a Christian in Afghanistan or another persecuted area.
And you can't even imagine how grateful these survivors are to be touched by the family of God across the ocean after losing everything.
They see the Father in action, working through you, and rescuing them against all odds when they are at their lowest.
Watching our donors care for their brothers and sisters, I am continually reminded of Matthew 25:40: "Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me."
Thank you in advance for your support and God Bless,
International Christian Concern
