Searching for Jesus is dangerous in North Africa.

But Islèm believed it was worth it.

Islèm thought she was the only girl in North Africa curious about Jesus. But  an online search put her in touch with  other Christians. Given hope, she became a secret believer. Despite the threat of violence and rejection from her family.

She says, “Living as a Christian from a Muslim background in North Africa isn’t easy. But it is worth it. I thank God for it, to know the truth and to know who God really is.” The Covid-19 crisis means we all understand more now what it feels like to be isolated and afraid. Secret believers face an even tougher time.

Families face starvation, losing their jobs and unable to earn due to national lockdown. Christians face discrimination in receiving help from government and other sources. As the underground church reaches out to help, the exposure puts believers at great risk of persecution. Your love, support and prayers can be a lifeline to secret believers living in isolation. Open Doors is uniquely placed to help vulnerable believers through the coronavirus crisis. You can show courageous secret believers they are not alone.
