6. Disciple A Secret Believer | $1,500
Hope looks like strengthening the underground church!
We can't tell you what country this project is in because it puts local believers at risk. But we can tell you that faith here is forbidden and discipleship is extremely dangerous.
This card gives a secret believer an opportunity to be flown out of their country to a place where they can safely be trained and discipled. When they return, we connect them with other secret Christians online and through secure social media, creating a digital underground church.
