Voice of the Martyrs proudly funds the ministry activities of front line workers in many nations. These workers are compelled by Jesus’ words in Mathew 28:19-20 to “Go and make disciples…” By providing an allowance to these evangelists, it releases them to do ministry work and helps to build God’s kingdom in some of the darkest and most restricted areas of the world.
Every year, Voice of the Martyrs supplies funds for the purchase and distribution of motorbikes for frontline workers. These church planters, pastors and evangelists are active both in spreading the Gospel and nurturing persecuted Christians in remote tribal areas. Several of them have also been the victims of persecution.

Bibles are not sold in bookshops and the penalty for evangelising Muslims is a $15,000 fine or up to five years in prison. The urgent need for the Gospel means that equipping believers who are willing to share it is a top priority.
