FAITH UNDER FIRE: Pastor Mall’s Journey of Faith and Survival

“I believe in the power of prayer as a way to connect with a higher power and seek guidance, comfort, or strength.”
– Pastor Mall

“My family was really struggling in the beginning because we had visa issues. I met a brother from Philoi and told them about my entire situation. They helped me with the entire process of getting the Protection Visas, and I really thank God that we received our Protection Visas on 8 April 2024, within 6 months. I am also really thankful for their help.”

Their journey has been fraught with danger and hardship, but they remain hopeful for a future where they can live in peace and continue to worship Jesus freely. We are so grateful for the opportunity to partner with this family on their journey to safety, and we are so grateful to those who have partnered with our ministry to make this possible.

Ongoing Need for Support
We ask for your continued support and prayer during this time so that we may continue to work with those in need. Financial support for our work has been significantly affected, which will impact our ability to respond in the 2024-2025 financial year. Despite our limited resources, we feel blessed to assist those suffering from persecution, and we greatly appreciate your support and prayers.

As the end of the financial year approaches, we invite you to consider a financial donation; any donation of $2 or more to Philoi before the end of the financial year is tax-deductible. By donating to Philoi, you are helping to change the lives of persecuted minorities by providing them with relief, relocation, and resettlement services. Please remember that donations must be made by June 30 2024 to be eligible for current financial year tax deductibility.
