JOSH: You can reach OPEN hearts in CLOSED countries!

#2769175 - Josh: Closed Countries

In eight countries that are closed to the gospel, Josh McDowell Ministry is hoping to provide 386,200 Christian books — including More Than a Carpenter, The Deity of ChristThe New Evidence That Demands a Verdict and others — for truth seekers who have little or no access to Christ-centered resources.

To do this, we must raise $1.6 million.

Your gift now will equip our field staff in these eight critical, closed countries with the books and other resources they need to share the truth of Jesus.

Share Christian resources in eight closed countries!

Your gift will advance the truth of Jesus in eight countries where governments and religious establishments are resistant, or even openly hostile, to the spread of the good news. 

We’re not even able to name them, because the safety of our field staff could be put at risk.

One of our field staff shared:

"Thank you, thank you, thank you. We continue to need your help. The door is open now, but may not be open long. This is not about me, not even about the people we serve. It is about God. It is about Jesus.

"He is the reason we are sold out to reaching our country for Jesus Christ. God has given us favor now with officials in all areas of our country. And we will work with every breath we have until we can’t do it anymore.

"Please, please pray for us. And please help us with Josh books."
