Global Catalytic Ministries Aids Afghanistan Earthquake Survivors

Two weeks ago, the deadliest quake in 20 years wiped out entire villages and killed more than 1,000 people in eastern Afghanistan. Today, believers offer the hope of Christ to earthquake survivors.

“We have people on the ground giving food, water, helping with shelter; we’re going to be building homes,” Reza* with Global Catalytic Ministries says.

After struggling to respond, the Taliban now urges foreign aid groups to help. “We’ve been working through them, actually,” Reza says.

“They’ve been merciful because they don’t have the resources to help these people.”

The terrorists still actively persecute believers. “They’re still very vengeful and vicious in the sense that they’re going door to door looking for Christians,” Reza says.

“They are interrogating people; they’re clamping down with fear.”

However, as the Taliban welcomes Christian relief workers, it leads to unexpected Gospel opportunities.
