There is hope in the person of Jesus Christ.
Despite the slaughter of millions of innocent unborn children, the abandonment of God's design for marriage, the rising tide of immorality in America, and the growing apostasy of the church ...
Despite the turmoil in the Middle East and other parts of the Muslim world ...
There is still hope in His shed blood.
This hope does not spring from fiscal security. It is not found in well-crafted political policy. It cannot be signed into law by the courts. It does not depend on our current president, or the next.
This hope comes from Jesus, the "author and finisher of our faith" (Hebrews 12:2). And it is this hope that spurs us on in Gospel ministry -- taking the light of His Truth to so many living in darkness.
"To those living in darkness, the Gospel is the greatest news of all -- and yet, so many have yet to hear it."
A mission this monumental can only be accomplished when we work together. That is why several generous ministry partners have committed $400,000 to Leading The Way for our June Gift Challenge. They see the need, have given sacrificially, and are challenging you to match their gifts this month.
If all our partners come together this month, $400,000 becomes $800,000 given to reach the lost, equip the saints, and help the persecuted worldwide.
With your help, we will continue to shine the light of God's Truth as the darkness bears down, proclaiming the Good News of Jesus over the airwaves, following up with new believers on the ground, and helping our persecuted brothers and sisters in Christ -- reaching friends like Nadir* in Egypt. He shares:
"I doubted the Islamic religion and decided to compare it with Christianity. I found many answers through your Arabic programs. It is overwhelming to finally find what I have been looking for. God led me to repent and confess that Jesus is Lord."
To those living in darkness, the Gospel is the greatest news of all -- and yet, so many have yet to hear it. I pray you will continue helping us share this powerful message, "to proclaim freedom for the captives and release from darkness for the prisoners" around the world (Isaiah 61:1). God bless you.In Him,
