Can You Believe It? Church Pack

Imagine you live in a land where, because you’re a Christian:

  • you’re failed in your studies
  • your neighbours beat you up
  • your home is destroyed
  • your family is put in prison
  • your father is killed.

How would you respond? Would you lose heart, give up, change your faith? Or would you pray harder, stay faithful, grow bolder? Find out how God is strengthening his followers around the world in the face of hostility, violence and injustice - and share it with your church.
