Despite two years of war in a nation where apostasy from Islam is a death sentence, people are coming to faith in Jesus in Yemen.
Open Doors reports that baptisms are still regularly taking place. Jamil (not his real name), a former Muslim who now leads a church, says the civil war has actually strengthened the indigenous Church. Before the war, most house churches depended on foreign Christian support, but when non-Yemeni Christians were forced to leave, the Yemenis had to take the lead in their own churches.
