Reaching Yemenis with Jesus Christ through Media Amid War and Famine

Yemen is one of the hardest places in the world for anyone to hear about Jesus, and yet the Holy Spirit is moving amid war and famine. Believers we cannot name for security purposes say more than 160 people have turned to Christ each year for the past five years.

Leaving Islam is a crime punishable by death in Yemen, and even owning a Bible is dangerous. Thankfully, more and more Yemenis are gaining access to Christian media in their own dialects.

The Lord is using media platforms to make His saving truth known.

One man learned about Jesus through social media and YouTube when he escaped to another country. Other people find Christ through the radio.

Yemeni Christian hosts recently heard this from a Yemeni listener:

“I’ve been listening to the program for more than four years, and I’ve been struggling with my beliefs and my traditions. It was a long journey, but I realized I was changing. I started to see things from different perspectives and I saw the real meaning of my life through Jesus Christ. I’m so thankful that I’m part of His family now.”
