Compassion for Afghanistan


urgent brief for prayer and opportunity to give compassionately to Afghanistan

Last winter, on one of our prayer calls to this country, an in-country believer shared how cold they were. They said it is not like in the West where you can just turn on your heater. Sometimes the electricity goes out (often actually) and other times it works poorly, if at all. Can you imagine living in sub-zero weather without heat? The housing conditions are such that many homes can’t hold in the heat. The image of seeing this gospel worker bundled up sharing with us on a prayer call, has been etched in my mind.

This winter to date at least 21 people have died due to the cold weather and heavy snowfalls in parts of the country. We also know of 1 family who had to sell their 45-day-old baby for 50,000 Afghani (equivalent of $650 USD) to pay for food and blankets and two other families also sold their children in the past weeks.



Praying about this issue, we acknowledge that it is a great opportunity to help these families and access people who would normally be difficult to access by serving them with blankets and heating supplies. We desire your partnership to help 100 of the poorest families by sending funds into the country to workers who can buy the supplies and deliver them. For approximately $200 USD, we can provide two months of assistance for a family of 6 to 7 people. Can you imagine? Just $200 could save a family’s life. Would you like to support a family for the winter? Give now to GCM, choose the fund “Afghanistan Winter Relief” and we will urgently get the funds to disciple makers who will compassionately serve these families.

Please pray today for the believers inside this country to have more than enough to give to their neighbors and that God would use them in impactful ways to access hard to reach families during the winter. Pray especially for protection from the violent atmosphere and extreme winter conditions.

Thank you for your prayers for these special people and land.

We believe the Scriptures, both the Old and New Testaments, are inspired by God and are the revelation of God to man, the infallible, authoritative rule of faith and conduct. (2 Timothy 3:15-17, 1 Peter 1:21)

We believe that there is one God, eternally existent who has revealed Himself as embodying the principles of relationship and association as Father, Son and Holy Spirit. (Deuteronomy 6:4, Luke 3:22)

We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His atoning death through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father where He intercedes for us, in His present rule as Head of the Church, and in His personal return in power and glory. (Matthew 1:23, Luke 1:31)

We believe in the creation of mankind in God’s image, and the fall of man, resulting in universal guilt and total depravity; and the necessity, therefore, of redemption and restoration; that all men and women are lost spiritually and face the judgment of God, that Jesus Christ is the only way of salvation, and that repentance of sin and faith in Jesus Christ is necessary for regeneration by the Holy Spirit. (Genesis 1:26-27, Genesis 2:17)

We believe salvation is received through repentance toward God and faith toward the Lord Jesus Christ. By the washing of regeneration and renewing of the Holy Spirit, being justified by grace through faith, man becomes an heir of God, according to the hope of eternal life. (Luke 24:47, John 3:3)

We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost; the saved unto the resurrection of eternal life in the presence of our Lord, and the lost unto the resurrection of damnation and eternal punishment. (Matthew 25:46, Mark 9:43-48)

We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ and that all true believers are members of His body, the Church, which has the duty to preach the Gospel to every person. (Ephesians 1:22-23, Ephesians 2:22)

We believe that we must dedicate ourselves to prayer, to the service of our Lord, to His authority over our lives, and to the ministry of teaching, preaching, the prophetic, the apostolic, and evangelism. (Ephesians 4:11-13)

We believe in upholding the ordinances of the church of water baptism and holy communion.

The ordinance of baptism by immersion is commanded by the Scriptures. All who repent and believe in Christ as Savior and Lord are to be baptized. Thus, they declare to the world that they have died with Christ and that they also have been raised with Him to walk in newness of life. (Matthew 28:19, Mark 16:16, Acts 10:47,48, Romans 6:4)

The Lord’s Supper, consisting of the elements—bread and the fruit of the vine—, is the symbol expressing our sharing the divine nature of our Lord Jesus Christ (2 Peter 1:4), a memorial of His suffering and death (1 Corinthians 11:26), and a prophecy of His second coming (1 Corinthians 11:26), and is enjoined on all believers “till He comes!”
