People in every corner of the globe have been faced with incredible burden and uncertainty this spring due to the coronavirus pandemic.

But some in Pakistan have encountered even greater difficulties because of their faith in Jesus.

Just a few months ago, The Tide® (thetide.org) global gospel radio ministry began broadcasting the Good News of Jesus Christ in two languages in Pakistan—Pashtu and Saraiki.

“It’s been an exciting development to share the hope of Christ with these precious people in Pakistan,” said The Tide Director Don Shenk. “But unfortunately, there have been reports in other areas of Pakistan that Christians have been denied aid during the COVID-19 pandemic, simply because of their faith in Jesus. Many Christians around the world face difficulties, persecution, torture and death because they are in the religious minority. When we hear about Christians suffering further during this global crisis, it’s all the more tragic and heartbreaking.”
