|We have thousands of brothers & sisters in Christ who serve their Lord Jesus with amazing zeal and yes, sacrifice.|
Whatcha up to, other than taking the plunge? I would love to hear what my (blog) followers and all my readers are diving themselves into; in addition to your regular summer agenda?
Seven months ago I made a few resolutions, some I started to keep, others I have not begun. God had a New Years Resolution for me and my family. I am thrilled that He is carrying us down a path this is scary, challenging, eye opening and invigorating.
The Lord has led my husband Brad and I, to become Area Director for the Voice of the Martyrs. We are quite humbled being an instrument in His Hands to help open the American Church of Jesus Christ's eyes to see the need of the persecuted church.
VOM was started by evangelists Richard & Sabina Wurmbrand in 1967. He and his wife were both severely persecuted in Romania; suffering agonizing attacks on their bodies, minds and spirits. You can get his book free of charge by signing up here: https://etools.ncol.com/a/tfc/bg_vomtfc_persecutioncom-tfc-flash_346.html called Tortured for Christ.
Did you know there are nations that are Restricted and then those that are Hostile all towards anyone who is a Christian? The Restricted Nations is where the Government opposes Christianity; showing this in numerous attacks on the Body of Christ. Hostile Nations are those the Government says they will protect Christians but persecution still comes from other avenues. Both having basically the same results-terrible tortures, imprisonment and even death. I just watched a news release of two little Christian boys who were lit on fire for their faith and I know one of them survived.
Please, join me, praying for the persecuted church.
