CCI Leaders Face Intense Persecution
Your Support Helps Stand in the Gap Between Spiritual Freedom and Darkness
For many who follow Jesus in the 10/40 Window (the western rim of North Africa to Japan, China to Indonesia), persecution is a reality of life. Over half of the world’s population, (4 billion) live in the 10/40 Window, with 95% of these people being Unreached People Groups (UPGs). In countries with the predominant religions of Hinduism, Buddhism, and Islam, very little Gospel witnessing is allowed, and true Christ-followers face varying forms of persecution and discrimination.
While some have faced violent and physical persecution, most Christ-followers seeking to live out their faith have faced more insidious forms of persecution – pressure by their families and neighbors, demotion in their jobs, shunning by society, and even rejection by their families.
