Train a persecuted Christian woman to strengthen her faith and serve the church.
When pastors are arrested or forced to go into hiding because of their ministry, it is often their wives who take over the pastoral responsibility, as well as maintaining their existing duties. In countries where Open Doors works to strengthen the church, many women ask to be trained, as well as the men, because they too have many ministry opportunities. Women’s training programs are conducted in many countries to equip women to impact their communities for Christ. Women’s training provides a space for women to meet, discuss and encourage each other. It is particularly popular across Southeast Asia, where Christian women cannot wait to share their knowledge of God with others.
$75 helps provide training for a woman in the persecuted church.
There will be many unforeseen and critical emergencies that happen during the next 12 months. You can help Open Doors to respond to these crises and help our dear brothers and sisters in their darkest hour of need.
"This service that you perform is not only supplying the needs of the Lord's people but is also overflowing in many expressions of thanks to God." (2 Corinthians 9:12)
