We serve Christians around the world whose brave faith in Jesus means they are, beaten, threatened, imprisoned, tortured, falsely accused, disowned and hated.

God will never leave us

pattern

As a teenager, it can be hard to be a Christian. There’s all kinds of pressures facing us, and holding onto God can be really tough. For Farah, from the Middle East, her faith in Jesus is shared by her family, but being a Christian has had some severe consequences for them. Her home was raided by the authorities, her things were searched, her dad arrested. She’s been spied on, followed and had to leave her home country all because she and her family have chosen to believe in Jesus. Watch her story below:

Think…

  • Is there anything in this story that has stuck with you?
  • If faced with prison and hassle from authorities, how would you respond?
  • Farah’s dad kept sharing about Jesus even after he was told doing so would get him in serious trouble. He knew the cost, but wanted others to know Jesus too. Ben inspired by Farah’s dad – how can you take a risk for Jesus this week?
