YEMEN: SECRET BELIEVERS UNDER PRESSURE DUE TO RED SEA CRISIS

pattern

THe crisis in the red sea has brought yemen back into the news headlines, but the impact of the ongoing civil war and current international pressure on HOUTHI rebels has meant the secret church in the country is facing increasing risks and pressures…

WATCH THIS SUMMARY TO FIND OUT MORE…

“People are tense and live in fear because of the current situation,” report secret believers inside Yemen. “The bombardments were also very scary. The situation is tough.

“Christians are affected as a result of the increased security all over the country, especially in the capital, or areas where Houthis reside. 

“As for government-held cities, they’re already besieged. This makes it harder to move around the country as more checkpoints are in place and more questions will be asked for those roaming around and, consequently, this will affect Christians communicating and meeting together.

“Missile attacks in the past few days have stirred fear in the minds of individuals and parents specifically. Whenever there is a ‘new instability’ in the country, the prices skyrocket again and the local currency deteriorates. It becomes harder for people to buy their basic needs.

“What is happening today is of course an added pressure on already pressured Christians.”

“During this ongoing conflict, God is working more than before!”

SECRET BELIEVERS IN YEMEN

What’s it like being a Christian in Yemen?

Because Yemeni society is strongly Islamic, tribal and conservative, it’s impossible for converts to express their faith freely. The influence of radical Islam has increased and the country’s decade-long civil war, bringing a catastrophic humanitarian crisis, has exacerbated pressure on believers.

Yemeni’s Christians courageously follow Jesus, despite numerous challenges. Your prayers are key to this – and they continue to be needed as yet another challenge greets them. “We believe that God is with us, but many families are afraid and anxious at the moment,” say the believers.

It’s not the only hope that our family in Yemen are clinging to. “During this ongoing conflict, God is working more than before!” they say. “We see people asking questions and accepting the Word of God in these tough days. Pray with us that God will use this new conflict to make a new thing in Yemen. May God open new doors to serve others.”

PRAY NOW...
1

That Christians in Yemen will renew their strength in the Lord and be guarded from harm

3

That God will use this crisis to open new doors for people to hear about Jesus.

2

That the ‘peace of God, which transcends all understanding will guard [their] hearts and minds in Christ Jesus’ (Philippians 4:7)
