I was introduced to Voice of the Martyrs by a friend who informed me about their work for many persecuted Christians worldwide. As a Bible student I had been astounded by the hostility towards the Gospel of Peace as recorded in history.
I also read about the coming global persecution in Bible prophecy. What impacted me most was the scope of current persecution. While I was enjoying religious and civil freedoms in the west there were many who were persecuted for their witness for Christ in more than 60 countries. This captivated my attention and informed my prayers on behalf of fellow Christian believers who suffer for Christ.
The work of VOM and the testimony of persecuted Christians has been a great blessing to me in my personal walk with God.
