In countries where sharing the gospel is dangerous, or even illegal, people are hungry for truth. We hear stories every day from spiritually oppressed areas in the Middle East, North Africa, Eastern Europe and Central Asia — places we refer to as the “frontlines” of the gospel.
God is moving in miraculous ways.
In the past, it was a celebration when just one person put their faith in Jesus. Now, tens of thousands are claiming Christ as their Savior or wanting to know more about Him.
As people continue to stare down their futures with uncertainty, they are asking the “big questions” more urgently:
- “What will happen when I die?”
- “Does the Bible say anything about the afterlife?”
- “How can I know I’m going to heaven?”
- “Does God answer prayer?”
- “Is it even possible to have inner peace during these chaotic times?”
The current uncertainty is causing many to question their traditional beliefs and look to Jesus for answers.
God is using working in the chaos and crises around the world to turn lives to Him!
But many missionaries are still facing a very grim reality:
Staff around the world, especially in frontline countries, are unable to raise funds from many of their supporters. And many are depleting their savings just to get by.
Because these missionaries live in countries that are hostile to the gospel, they often work in secret. They can’t advertise online or make their needs public.
As one missionary in the Middle East aptly stated: “What we do is illegal.”
To make matters worse, the rising cost of living and worldwide inflation have put many in a difficult situation: remain a missionary and focus all their attention on sharing the gospel, or look for a job somewhere else.
Soon, many missionaries won’t have money for essentials — like food, medicine and housing.
Frontline missionaries are staring at an uncertain future — for their ministries, for their families and for themselves.
But you can help:
All gifts to the Frontline Staff Fund will be matched, dollar-for-dollar, up to $50,000 through Giving Tuesday.
Cru® missionaries are absolutely committed to the gospel. No matter their circumstances, they are dedicated to sharing the love of Christ.
But for many staff members, there are no other options. They need financial help ASAP.
On average, each missionary only needs an additional $300 per month.
Your Giving Tuesday gift today to frontline staff will be doubled. In dangerous and chaotic parts of the world, your gift lets faithful missionaries keep doing the Lord’s work.
Would you consider a gift to support staff in need today? Your generosity could be the difference between life and death for missionaries in some of the hardest hit countries.
You can be a lifeline to our brothers and sisters in need.
You can help show them that they are not forgotten.
You can share the hope that God is in control, even when the world seems to be in chaos.
You can help share the gospel around the world.
