Chad Ministry Update

Islamic extremists in Chad discovered one of our Treasure audio Bibles and have urgently alerted their Muslim community by circulating a strong video warning on WhatsApp (a popular global messaging app). Their message? “Start opposing this Christian thing!”

The gospel has been spreading quickly and these extremists, Islamic missionaries in a way, are recognizing the threat that the Treasure brings.

One reason that Treasures are so effective is that they are made available to the people freely and in their own heart language. This is in stark contrast to the Islamic belief system, which is built upon the Quran being recited and read in the Arabic language alone. The Islamic leaders of this area are intimidated by the reality that the people now have access to the power of God’s Word in their very own language. In the video warning that’s being circulated (see screenshot on right), they noted that they’ve seen local men sitting together and listening to “this thing” underneath trees in the heat of the day.

Our indigenous leader shared, “[In their video message] they even threatened to identify all of those who have served their voice to record the Scripture on the Treasures, as well as those who are distributing them. Please pray for my network as they seek to distribute. Pray that God will preserve them. Pray that the message of salvation will do its ministry as a fire and a rain. Pray for God to provide, protect, and give wisdom to the Christian missionaries serving among the dark areas of Chad.”
