The Taliban May Rule Afghanistan, But God Is in Control

Stories We're Following: From Voice of the Martyrs

When the Taliban originally took control of Afghanistan after the Soviet withdrawal, some Afghans welcomed them, thinking they might bring order to the chaos. But instead, the group brought a radical Islamist interpretation of Sharia law that affected everyone in the country — especially women and girls.

Today the Taliban is back in control of Afghanistan, but we know that God is ultimately in control. We also know that more Afghans are following Christ today than were 20 years ago, and many have made the decision to stay in the country as His witnesses despite the threat posed by the Taliban.
