with Leaders

“You made it possible for us to remain in the Lord’s service when every reason urged us to retreat from discouragement, retreat from lack of sufficient funds and retire from insufficient know-how. You have encouraged us, funded us and educated us when we so much needed it. If we are a kite the Lord is flying, you are the string in his hands.” Francis Omondi, senior ministry leader, Kenya

Equipping, supporting, training and encouraging – Barnabas Aid is partnering with senior Christian leaders to enable them to keep serving in key ministries in contexts of pressure and persecution.

with Bible and Theological Colleges

“This study is blessing of God for me. The Lord … has transformed my mind.” A senior church leader in Uzbekistan

In the last two years, Barnabas Aid has supported 10,240 Christians who are equipping themselves for service by studying. We support theological colleges, Bible colleges, and other Christian training institutes in 26 countries, including Algeria, China, India, Indonesia, Kenya, Kyrgyzstan, Moldova, Nepal, Pakistan, Sri Lanka and Tajikistan. We also fund specialised training to equip leaders with particular skills needed in their own ministry contexts and to help them face persecution.

through Resources

“It was my great desire to get this Bible… The whole congregation will be blessed through this book.” Pastor Sharif Khokhar in Pakistan, who received an Urdu Study Bible from Barnabas Aid

Many courageous Christian leaders are ministering in situations of great poverty and hardship. They may have few or no resources to help them, sometimes not even a Bible. Barnabas Aid provides Bibles, reference books and all kinds of ministry resources to enable them to function more effectively. Strengthening pastors enables them to strengthen their congregations, so they can stand in the face of persecution. In the last two years, we provided 1,480,834 pieces of Christian literature, including Bibles and other items in 14 languages and 24 countries.

with Pastors and Evangelists

“I thank you and the brothers and sisters in Barnabas Aid organisation who are a great blessing to me and my family, as you have been my partners in the work which the Lord has accomplished through me. I am truly very encouraged and relieved on the issue of finance for my needs and the needs of my family.” Pastor H. from Algeria

Barnabas Aid has helped to support 573 full-time Christian workers in 33 countries in the last two years. Ministering in their homeland or amongst their own people group, these evangelists, church-planters and pastors are serving faithfully in contexts of hardship and hostility.

    • Give thanks that as believers in some areas of Egypt continue to be at risk of violence from Islamists, Barnabas Aid is able to provide various kinds of practical help for needy Christians there, especially those most affected by the political turmoil. We are supporting Christian families in Upper Egypt with housing costs, medicines, food and schooling for their children, and 30 Christian students who were on the verge of dropping out of education because of lack of money have received funding to complete their education. Pray for all those receiving this help, that they will also be encouraged spiritually. Subscribe to the prayer points rss feed 5 hours ago

    • Give thanks that the authorities in Egypt are pursuing justice for the Christian community following widespread violence against them by supporters of the Muslim Brotherhood last summer. Christians were scapegoated by the Islamists for the downfall of President Mohammed Morsi. On 14 August, mobs torched scores of churches, Christian institutions and private property in what was described as the worst single day of violence against the Egyptian Church since the 14th century. Over 100 Muslims have been charged in connection with the attacks; at the time of writing they were due to stand trial for rioting, attacking citizens and targeting the churches and homes of Christians. Pray that justice will be done and restitution made to churches and individuals who suffered material losses. Subscribe to the prayer points rss feed Tue, Jul 2014 00:00

    • “I was so happy and treasure this Word of God. It brings me so much peace and hope.” Uu Dee KoMang, an elderly woman in Burma (Myanmar), was one of many Christians who recently received a Kachin Bible through Barnabas Aid. Two years ago the Burmese army entered her village and ordered everyone to leave within the hour. Uu Dee took some clothes and food and ran, but her Bible was too heavy to carry. Now living in a relocation camp, she regretted not taking it, until the Bibles from Barnabas arrived. Pray that God’s Word will comfort and strengthen these believers who have lost so much and will give them encouragement for the future. Subscribe to the prayer points rss feed Mon, Jul 2014 00:00

    • Pray for three Christian prisoners of conscience in Vietnam who are being denied access to Bibles and other sources of spiritual support. Prison guards in Hanoi and Thanh Hoa province have refused to allow Le Quoc Quan, a lawyer and activist, and bloggers Maria To Phong Tan and Paul Tran Minh Nhat to receive visits from their church leaders and have prevented them from receiving Communion. Maria is serving a ten-year prison sentence in a harsh labour camp; she has been beaten by other inmates. Pray that the Lord will sustain and build up the faith of our brothers and sister as they cry out to Him in their need (Psalm 142:6). Subscribe to the prayer points rss feed Sun, Jul 2014 00:00

    • Five ethnic Hmong Christian families in Vietnam have been attacked by their neighbours in attempts to get them to renounce their faith. On 26 February, Hang A Khua and his family were ordered to recant by public security officers, backed by around 30 villagers from Trun Phu in Dien Bien province; when they refused, the officers ordered the villagers to attack them. The mob ransacked and demolished the family’s house; their rice fields were confiscated, and they were expelled from the district. In Son La province, four more Christian families were similarly threatened in March. One couple were attacked in their home; they were kicked and punched, and the wife was dragged out of the house by her hair. Give thanks for these families’ courageous stand for Christ and pray that they will find strength in Him. Subscribe to the prayer points rss feed Sat, Jul 2014 00:00
