Imagine coming home and finding all your stuff packed up in bags. What could you have done that was so bad that your family wouldn’t even come out of their rooms to see you, but just spoke to you briefly on your phone telling you to leave? For Anwar*, that thing was the choice to become a Christian.
Thanks to your support and prayers Open Doors partners have set up over 40 Centres of Hope, giving people like Anwar the chance of a new future. Help them to keep bringing hope. Take part in the Choose to Lose challenge and get sponsored to give up something you love for a short time to raise money and prayer for those who have lost much because of their faith in Jesus.

Thank God for Anwar’s brave faith, that he didn’t give up and that he’s now trying to help others too. Pray for those running the Centres of Hope across Syria and Iraq. Ask they would keep bringing God’s light and life to people’s lives and that many would come to know Jesus because of their work.
