Pakistan

Monaza is a mother of five children. Her husband is unable to work owing to poor health. To support her family, she had to get a job as a domestic worker, a dangerous position for a vulnerable Christian woman in Pakistan.

Barnabas Fund has been working in Pakistan to help change lives of impoverished Christian families by providing them with monthly food parcels. This allows the families to use their meagre income to send their children to school, thus breaking the cycle of poverty and illiteracy. They can also meet other needs. Monaza can now buy medicine for her husband.

Iraq

Our brothers and sisters in Iraq have become the target of threats, bombings, kidnapping, rape and murder. As Muslim extremists attempt to “cleanse” the country of Christians, thousands of families have fled their homes for relatively stable parts of northern Iraq and to the nearby countries of Syria, Lebanon and Jordan.

Egypt

The Christian community of Egypt has become increasingly needy over recent decades, and many Christian families live in severe poverty. Some of Egypt’s poorest Christians earn a living from collecting, sorting and reprocessing garbage in Cairo. Some children do not even know what an egg is.

Many Christian families in Africa, Asia and the Middle East go to bed hungry.

Poverty and discrimination can mean that Christian families suffer hunger more intensely than other sections of the population. Others become destitute when they have to flee from natural disaster or anti-Christian violence.

Some examples

  • Destitute Iraqi Christian refugees have left their homes and jobs as they flee anti-Christian violence
  • Christian families in Egypt, Pakistan and the Holy Land impoverished through discrimination
  • Christians in Zimbabwe are suffering under massive inflation and the destruction of the country’s agricultural sector
  • Christians in other parts of Africa are affected by drought and famine

Around 75,000 Christians received feeding supplies through Barnabas Fund between July 2010 and June 2011. But the need continues...

    • “It is not typical for a man to show or talk about his weaknesses and admit them. These days the fear and pressure from the authorities and the Muslim world reveal the condition of my heart.” A Christian leader in Central Asia shared frankly in a letter the way in which the constant pressure he faced was wearing him down. He wrote how, having finally recognised his fears and defeats, he had then received encouragement from the Lord through the words of 2 Corinthians 1:1-10. Pray for our brother “M.T.” and the countless other Christians around the world living with ongoing opposition that the Father of compassion and God of all comfort will draw close and comfort them in all their troubles.

    • Thank the Lord that, with the help of Barnabas Fund, two house churches in a strict Central Asian country were able to purchase coal-powered generators. Winters there are harsh, and the power supply can Barnabas is helping 30,000 displaced Iraqi Christians be erratic. This particular congregation used to meet in a church building, but in 2009 their permit to assemble was revoked and seven of their members were questioned at the police station. Since then the church has had to meet in members’ homes. Pray that the Lord will continue to bless their ministry and that the generators will allow the church to continue to expand despite opposition from the government.

    • An Uzbek Christian who had converted from Islam died earlier this year and was buried. The local Muslim leaders banned any Muslim from attending the man’s funeral. But one of his work colleagues, a radical Muslim who had been struck by the Christian’s words and way of life, attended the funeral anyway, ignoring all the threats and warnings. She was puzzled by such a hostile reaction to a man she knew to be “God-fearing”. At the funeral she heard the Gospel and decided to give her life to Christ. Pray for “F.” as she is now being disciple and growing in her new faith, that she will be strong in the face of opposition from the Muslim community.

    • Pray for hundreds of Christian, Yazidi and Turkmen women held in Badush Prison in Mosul, Iraq by ISIS militants. The women are reported to be raped daily unless they agree to convert to ISIS’s brand of Sunni Islam. The UN estimates that there have been roughly 1,500 Iraqi women and children from the Christian and Yazidi communities abducted by ISIS and then forced into sexual slavery. Ask our Heavenly Father to have mercy on each one of these women and children and to deliver them from evil. Subscribe to the prayer points rss feed Thu, Nov 2014 00:00

    • Give thanks to the Lord that, through the generosity of Barnabas Fund supporters, over 30,000 displaced Christians in northern Iraq are being assisted through four local partner organisations on the ground. By funding the distribution of food, blankets, hygiene items and other basic needs, Barnabas has enabled them to survive their first months of displacement. But their needs will be greater now, as the Iraqi winter has set in. Pray that God will provide. Subscribe to the prayer points rss feed Wed, Nov 2014 00:00
