Dear partner of the persecuted Church,
They’re locked up, left alone by their families, spat on by their neighbours, rejected by their communities and thrown into prison by the authorities. Yet our persecuted family in Christ continues to stand strong and let their light shine.
Now with the added pressure of the pandemic, you may be wondering how is our persecuted family doing?
I recently had the opportunity to speak to some of our main local church partners in South and Southeast Asia. One of them shared with me how they’re reaching more people with the message of salvation during the lockdown, because Open Doors helped them to do their sermons digitally.
As I spoke to our church partners, they all told me to thank those who are helping them in this time of need. They also assured me of their prayers for us. We, at Open Doors, also thank you for your continued prayers and support.
I urge you to stay diligent in your prayers and support for our persecuted family. One of the ways you can support them, is through a Gift of Hope from our new Gift of Hope catalogue. Your gift will remind them that they’re not alone and will help them to continue to be Christ’s witnesses in some of the most dangerous places for Christians. Please prayerfully consider how you can make a difference in their lives through a gift.
In this time, we continue to keep you and your loved ones in our prayers, as we’ve all been deeply affected by the current pandemic. May God continue to bless you and keep you during this time.
