A few weeks ago, Adam* led a small team to deliver food, clothing and Bibles to the Afghan refugee village we have been serving since summer 2021. Until recently, our team has experienced relative freedom distributing relief, sharing the gospel, and handing out Bibles. That is until the TLBN got wind of it. Now, they are threatening every Afghan in that village who is discovered to be in possession of a Bible.
As our team handed out food and clothing, they offered Bibles but most refused out of fear. A few accepted a copy but they had to hide it in their food or under their clothing. As such, our team had no option but to leave the village with the remaining Bibles in hand.
Three years ago, Adam* gave a Bible to a Muslim gentleman he met in a village. This guy had no interest in it but accepted it as a gift, probably to save Adam’s face. He returned home with no intention of reading it and, for some reason, gave the Bible to his wife. She read it and was intrigued. She then began to ask her husband about it, which sparked his curiosity, so he decided to begin reading it with her.
