Jesus said: “Your Kingdom Come” (Matthew 6:10). We believe that what Jesus said is still needed for us today, not only for a distant future but God is building his Kingdom around the world in our days. We are to look for signs and news of His Kingdom and be those that will proclaim to the world of our King (Luke 4:18-21). Believing in this we are about the business of Hope. God always has a message of hope even amidst suffering and chaos.

We want to share 5 stories that will bring you Hope and help us to see how God’s Kingdom is expanding around the World today.

Christian Woman receives help from Muslims to hide from ISIS.

Last month, shortly after the Iraqi government regained control over some cities that were under ISIS control, a 60-year old woman that had been hiding from ISIS for 3 years was found. She had been helped by her neighbors, all muslims. In June 2014, millions of iraqis fled from MOsul and the Ninive plain. Georgette Hanna wasn’t able to get out in time and stayed behind in the city of Tel Kayf. Iraq is currently ranked in 7th nation with the highest rate of Christian Persecution.

The Kingdom advances in the Arab World

Against all ods, the Kingdom of God is advancing in the Arab world. There are many reasons for this. One of them is that the young population has been thirsty to understand their faith more. As a result many have started reading the Bible in order to understand more about Jesus, whom is cited in the Quran. The political instability has also made the older population to question the decisions of their religious leaders and governments.

Bibles on doorsteps in the Arabian peninsula

By the laws of many nations in the Arabian peninsula, it is forbidden for christians to talk to muslims about their faith. A Christian in that region, however, is sharing about the Gospel without breaking any laws: in the middle of the night, he goes around leaving Bibles at the doorsteps of muslim homes. There is no law forbidding that a muslim talks about any book that he has at his house. So, the next day, this Christian visits these homes and asks these families if they would like to know more about the “book”. As he has read through the Gospels, many muslims have been giving their lives to Jesus.

Many are coming to Jesus in Qatar

Qatar is the 20th most persecuted country in the world, according to the 2017 World Watch List. In 2022, the country will be the hosting nation for the World Cup and much work has been done so that the event will be a success. In order to achieve this goal many immigrants have been working in the construction projects. Work conditions are not as promised and amidst so many challenges many of these workers have found support and relief in the Message of God’s Love. A buddhist recently declared that he had never imagined that he would come to know Jesus in a muslim nation, but many have heard about Christ and how much he loves them and wants to know them. The gatherings between the workers happen casually and the Kingdom of God has been expanding among football stadiums.
