Thanks to you and your faithful prayer and support, God is writing a story that’s changing peoples’ lives. It’s a story of power, redemption and love for His people.

Because of your help, in 2017, we provided things like safe houses, emergency aid, microfinance loans and more to over 850,00 people.

Thanks to you, over 530,000 believers received discipleship training, mentoring and trauma counseling.

And with your support, we delivered over 2.5 million Bibles and pieces of Christian literature to believers around the world.

Open Doors is on the ground in more than 60 countries to meet the rising tide of Christian persecution. Join us and stand with them.

God is telling His story of hope in places like Syria and Iraq. There, in those war-torn countries that are still trying to recover from devastating conflicts and attacks from ISIS, you’ve helped restore 700 Christian homes, rebuild communities and helped churches become a beacon of light in the midst of the darkness of war.

God’s story is being told in Nigeria, where you’ve helped provide famine relief for more than 9,000 Christian families—as well as trauma counseling, discipleship and so much more!

God’s story provides hope and encouragement for Christians all over the world, and we thank you for helping write it with your support of Open Doors.

There is great darkness and suffering for God’s people around the world. But, Jesus brought God’s Kingdom to earth, and He is making all things new!

That is the story He’s telling every day, and your prayer and support are reminding your brothers and sisters of that they’re not alone—and that the worldwide Church stands together.

Thank you for standing with your sisters and brothers this year.

And thank you for being a part of the radical story of hope God is writing through His Church.
