This week we received an amazing report about the daughter of Pastor Joel (not his real name). Pastor Joel is a BTJ partner preaching the Gospel in the Himalayan mountains, but because of his faith, he is persecuted by the government. In his region, the government doesn’t only harass him for His belief in Jesus Christ, but they also punish his family.
Two years ago, Pastor Joel’s daughter didn’t have the opportunity to get an education and better her future because her family is on a black list, but because of the BTJ Martyrs Scholarship Fund, she is able to attend a private institution and get one of the best educations in the country!
Pastor Joel’s daughter is one of many children who suffer because of the ministry of their parents. Due to severe persecution in recent years, many Christian families are finding it difficult to give their children a proper education. Believers are being hit with huge fines they will never be able to pay. Sales of homes are being blocked, travel has been restricted, jobs are revoked, and thousands are being arrested.
Children are often the unseen casualty of these events. To help families like Pastor Joel’s, BTJ launched the Martyrs Scholarship Fund. The BTJ Martyrs Scholarship Fund helps children who are directly affected by parents facing restrictions, government pressure, surveillance, prison and other forms of persecution.
