How to Respond to Constant Unrest in the Middle East

Chaos brews in the Middle East. Tensions between Iran and the U.S. continue to rise, leaving believers around the world searching for peace amidst chaos.

Denise Godwin of International Media Ministries says the answer to the upheaval is Gospel peace. “A lot of the people in this region, in the Middle East and North Africa and in many parts of the world, are not accustomed to freedom being automatic,” she says. “I imagine their hope is based in Christ in a different way as the Body of Christ all around the world.”

Inspiring Middle Eastern believers means spotlighting local exemplars of faith. For one, they’re bringing Iranian believers into their studio to share Christ with the Middle Eastern Church.

Next, they’re spotlighting ancient believers indigenous to the Middle East and North Africa. This year, International Media Ministries will work to translate stories of significant historical Christians from the area. By sharing their stories and the impact their work has to this day, they hope to inspire the global Church to take heart in the face of persecution and tension.

“We want people to know truth, and the truth of Christ is supreme and brings hope when there seems to be no hope in circumstances, and it’s just so important to continue sending that message,” she says.
