BTJ Missionaries Find Open Doors for Ministry in Afghanistan

For most normal people, the door to Afghanistan has been slammed shut since the Taliban took over. All the things that the modern travelers look for in a destination are absent – fast food franchises have pulled out, investments have stopped, international banking is impossible, comfortable hotels are non-existent, travel warnings have been issued, most airlines have canceled all flights, and personal safety is not guaranteed.

However, there is one group of people that have found the door to Afghanistan wide open – BTJ missionaries!

“We have been working in Afghanistan for a couple of months now and have been amazed at the connections we have made with the people,” reported one missionary this week. “The people are open to us.”

This year, BTJ has experienced more open doors for direct ministry in Afghanistan than at any other time in the past. BTJ missionaries are streaming in and have better relationships with the Taliban than they had with any of the governments connected with the international coalition.

“For some strange reason,” Brother Ren, founder of BTJ, said this week to a large crowd of Chinese mission leaders, “I had a vision to connect with the leader of the Taliban in the area we were working in. He seemed excited to connect with us and welcomed us with open arms!”

The Chinese government is investing heavily in Afghanistan. The One Belt, One Road Initiative is the largest government backed financial investment in the world and is transforming nations in the 10/40 Window, including Afghanistan. The new Taliban regime is trying hard to prove to China that they are not quite as barbarically brutal as the old Taliban. They are attempting to show a more open side to the Communist regime and this has opened up several doors for ministry.

BTJ was able to share reports of people in Afghanistan getting saved and small underground church fellowships founded in the country.

Next month, BTJ will be hosting a BTJ Hackers Conference to work on special tools to help the Afghan church continue to grow in the current hostile environment.

Dr. Eugene Bach is a known trouble-maker with an active imagination and sinful past. He has a PhD, but is not a real doctor, so please do not call for him during a medical emergency on an airplane when someone is having a heart attack. Eugene started working for Back to Jerusalem in the year 2000 after a backroom deal involving Chinese spies, the NRA, Swiss bankers, and a small group of Apostolic Christians that only baptize in Jesus’ name. He spends most of his time in closed countries attempting to topple governments by proclaiming the name of Jesus and not taking showers. From time-to-time he pretends to be a writer. He is not good at it, but everyone around him tries to humor him.
