The work of pastors and evangelists in countries where Christian acts of faith are restricted, remains daunting and very challenging.
We hear story after story of pastors and believers being attacked or their places of worship being burned or demolished, often as a result of being falsely accused of illegal activity.
Frontline workers also face the loss of material possessions, lack of education opportunities for their children, restriction of movement, isolation for their families and threats of violence. All for carrying out the Great Commission.
The stories in this newsletter demonstrate how the Christian faith of many frontline workers remains resolute in the face of rigid opposition and oppression. The message from these dedicated workers is voiced throughout, which is: “Please pray for us as we share the Gospel.”
Yet, in all of these challenges there is hope. More Muslims are accepting Christ than at any other time
in history. The Chinese church is growing despite all the persecution the communist government is inflicting upon Christian believers.
Let us continue to pray and support valuable frontline workers who risk everything to fulfil their calling in restricted nations. Voice of the Martyrs is committed to being a valuable resource to these brothers and sisters in Christ.
“Yet if anyone suffers as a Christian, let him not be ashamed, but let him glorify God in this matter” 1 Peter 4:16.
