From Tim Swan, Anglican Aid

Our Afghan brothers and sisters in the Lord have started arriving to safety in Brazil, having fled their home country following the Taliban’s terrifying takeover.

Six families have arrived in the last week and another three families at the end of October – 91 people in total. Having escaped persecution and life-threatening danger without any of their possessions, they urgently need your help!

Will you help meet the many needs of families fleeing Afghanistan?

Anglican Aid’s long term partner, Sami Nagib, is working tirelessly with the Anglican Diocese of Vitoria to accept, support, and minister to these Christian families who have recently arrived from Afghanistan having secured places in Brazil’s refugee intake. Sami has asked for your urgent prayer and financial support as they meet the immense needs of these families recovering from this crisis.

Would you consider making a tax-deductible gift that will support Afghan Christian refugees escaping the Taliban as they settle in a safe country? 

Your gift could help to provide basic necessities for a family of eight for one month, as well as pastoral care through the local church, trauma counselling, short vocational education courses for adults, schooling for children and language classes.

In addition to caring for the physical needs of those who are fleeing the country, Anglican Aid has also partnered with Megavoice to provide secure audio-Bible players to Afghan Christians who have suffered under the Taliban.

Your gift can also help to relieve the distress of these persecuted Christians with the hope of the gospel.

You can be part of helping to distribute 1000 Megavoice players to Afghan believers to help relieve suffering and distress by reminding them of God’s Word. These are secure, pocket-sized, solar-powered devices that have the Bible recorded in the local language. 

Would you please join Anglican Aid and Sami in prayer:

· For God’s favour for others that are waiting for visas and vaccination.

· For Anglican Aid’s partners in Brazil, that God’s strength and wisdom will fill them as they serve these families with love.

· For healing for the refugees physically, emotionally, and spiritually.

Let grace flow, Tim Swan.
