God's Kingdom Advancing One Heart at a Time

[204] prayers in [11] nations have been posted for Underground Small Groups.

Hundreds of small groups are meeting in homes throughout Afghanistan to study the Bible using a storytelling method, according to a VOM worker. The small groups have been especially effective at reaching women, who in Afghanistan are limited mostly to the home. Social media, which can place Bibles in the hands of people who have never read God’s Word, is another effective means of outreach. Still, many people groups and language groups do not yet have access to the Scripture in their language. Pray for those involved in Bible translation, printing and distribution. Pray also for those sharing the gospel from home to home.
