In May 2016, a team from Open Doors Australia went to visit Christians in the Middle East.
Steve Chong from RICE Movement was on the trip to the Middle East, and shared his journey with the persecuted church on Facebook throughout the week the team was there.
After meeting more believers, Steve posted again as he grappled with the reality of the church in the Middle East.
His wife, Naomi, shared about meeting persecuted sisters.
- Please pray for Christians in the Middle East, pray that they would be strengthened in faith, even in the midst of persecution.
- Pray for the salvation of their persecutors and members of Islamic State – to see their sin and turn to Jesus in repentance and faith.
