John Weaver, author of Najiba: A Love Story from Afghanistan, shares his insights on the current situation in Afghanistan, where many Christians have had to flee due to the Taliban's control. He encourages us to pray for the Afghan people, both Christians and those under Taliban rule, and to reach out to Afghan refugees in our communities and churches. He also encourages us to pray for those still in Afghanistan, who are sharing the gospel through social media, and for the Taliban to lead with peace and focus on what's best for the Afghan people.

John Weaver, author of Inside Afghanistan, A Flame on the Frontline, and Najiba: A Love Story from Afghanistan, discusses the challenges faced by Afghan Christians living under the strict Islamic rule of the Taliban. He explains the persecution they face from local mosques, communities, and families, as well as the economic crisis and lack of assistance from the outside world. Despite these difficulties, many Afghans are dissatisfied with Islam and open to the gospel. Afghan Christians are courageously sharing the gospel and finding “people of peace” in their communities. VOM Radio encourages listeners to pray for Afghan Christians and for wider distribution of the Pashtun Bible.

He also shares his own story of persecution for spreading the gospel to North Korea and reminds us that getting God's Word out, even just one copy, is worth it.

Brother Maksud was born and raised in a Muslim family in a country that was part of the Soviet Union. After the fall of the USSR, his country became more Islamic and civil war broke out. Maksud was impacted by seeing the JESUS Film and hearing Jesus speak his own language, and a Christian friend shared stories from the Bible about God. At a free Taekwondo lesson, Maksud heard those same stories again. When he first stepped into a church, he was shocked by the atmosphere of love and people greeting him by name with hugs. At age 18, Maksud made the decision to follow Jesus and his younger brother followed soon after. When they shared their Christian faith with their mom, she cried, knowing their family would be shamed and face persecution. Surprisingly, their father revealed he had given his life to Christ two years prior and had been praying for them. Despite not facing persecution from his family, Maksud knew he and his brother would be persecuted by others. Today, Maksud and his brother are pastors and he encourages people to pray for his people in Central Asia, including praying that whole families will come to Christ together.
