I first heard about VOM when I went to a church service and heard one of their speakers. I had no idea about the widespread suffering of our brothers and sisters all around the globe.
Honestly, I was heartbroken. It made me think, “If my own family were in prison, what lengths would I go to care for them? How much more for my spiritual brothers and sisters!” My eyes have been open to the fact that God can bring about great joy even through suffering. VOM has challenged my theology and enlarged my view about who God is and what he can do in the face of suffering and evil.
I am thankful for the work that VOM is doing around the world and am glad to partner with them.
