The movement in the Horn of Africa continues to make disciples, planting four new house churches every day. To date, they have seen more than 230,000 people become followers of Jesus. With a deep commitment to prayer and fasting, they follow Luke 10, looking for “people of peace” who then bring households, villages, and entire tribes to Jesus. Daily, their church planters face persecution for the sake of the gospel. But, they say, “we count it all joy so that we can share Jesus with more people.” For security reasons, we don’t divulge the identity of these brothers and sisters.

After watching this episode of God Pops Up, read our article about a kindergarten teacher called to ministry aboard the Africa Mercy.

Through God Pops Up, CT Media brings you stories from some of the world’s most dangerous locations. These stories feature people who are risking their lives to share the Good News. Although we have sought credible sources, for security reasons, we cannot cite those sources, show photos of subjects, or name names. In this series, we use animation to tell true narratives that encourage the global church, but we also seek to protect the people behind those narratives.

CT Media created these videos as a discipleship tool for both kids and adults. Thank you for watching and sharing these stories.

If God leads, you can give a tax-deductible gift to any of these causes by giving through the National Christian Foundation (NCF). NCF will anonymously pass your gift to the cause you’ve chosen.
