YEMEN APPEAL: 5 ways your gift could make a difference

Yemen is in crisis

The recent Yemen civil war has been raging for over three years now.  22.2 million people are in humanitarian need. That is more than 80% of the Yemeni 30 million population. It is the worst humanitarian crisis since World War 2 and they have also experienced the worst cholera epidemic in recorded history.

What can be done?

With our partners and local believers we are meeting some of the physical and spiritual needs of the Yemeni people.

The YEMEN APPEAL is providing much-needed resources to fund projects that tackle both urgent health issues like cholera as well as the ongoing, underlying humanitarian problems that internally displaced people encounter in their daily fight for survival.

What about the Church in Yemen?

Despite the ongoing civil war and desperate living conditions, God’s message of lasting hope is being shared in Yemen. Yemeni believers are bravely stepping out in faith and sharing Jesus in their communities.

In 2016, we were aware of 32 new believers in Yemen. In 2017, we heard reliable reports that there were as many as 170 new believers!  We are able to encourage and equip Yemeni leaders with teaching and discipleship, and link seekers on the ground with believers through our internet ministry, as small house churches emerge across the country.

Despite the fact that Yemen continues to experience a deteriorating humanitarian situation, the Church in the country continues to grow. Foreigners sowed and watered the soil for more than a century. Now, Yemenis are tending the garden and God is causing growth in the Church in both numbers and maturity.
