News out of North Africa and the Middle East is bleak for Christians. Persecution is increasing for those who dare to share their faith. Ministry in these countries has been driven far underground.
How could we ignore the call of our Lord to take His gospel “to the ends of the earth”? We couldn’t, of course.
It’s the heart of everything we do here at Josh McDowell Ministry. But it isn’t easy — especially in closed countries throughout the Middle East and North Africa.
We need your help today to equip our missionaries in North Africa and the Middle East with vital evangelism tools. When faced with the reality of imprisonment, harsh beatings, verbal abuse and even death, few people jump at the chance to preach the gospel. What’s more, even those who are willing to take the truth of Jesus to the most dangerous places can’t get in. Their voices are stifled.
These obstacles can be daunting. Since we know from Scripture that all things are possible with God, we’ve chosen to view these obstacles as challenges, and challenges are meant to be conquered!
Today you have the opportunity to help us do just that. For just $3.25 you can put the truth of Jesus Christ into the hands of truth-seekers in the Middle East and North Africa with Christian books and other evangelism and discipleship resources. And these resources will likely find their way into the hands of at least 10 other people.
The books you provide through Josh McDowell Ministry help change lives forever. When people come to know Jesus, they will risk persecution or imprisonment to reach others — and the gospel will be spread to the ends of the earth.
YES! — I want to reach truth-seekers in closed countries with Christian books and other evangelism materials and discipleship resources. Click here to make a gift!

“Pocket Man’s” Story
In a country closed to Christianity (unnamed to protect him), one man’s life was changed when he saw a film about Jesus. Now he’s doing everything he can to share the truth with everyone he meets. This bold evangelist lives and works where sharing the gospel is illegal. But his passion for evangelism drives him to take the risk.
Each morning, this man fills “secret pockets” sewn into his jacket lining with New Testaments, DVDs and even copies of our books that are provided by friends like you. Then he goes to work.
God has given him a job working for a utility company that allows easy access into any home in the city. While making friendly conversation during his visits, he is often invited to sit down for tea after his work is done. During the visit, he will reach inside his jacket and present the gospel.
He knows he’s taking a grave risk by revealing his true beliefs to strangers in a city where proclaiming the gospel can get you killed. But God is protecting him and other ministry partners like him. And they need your help.
