Successful Fundraising Dinner

Voice of the Martyrs Australia held a first and successful fundraising dinner at Liverpool Catholic Club (LCC) on Saturday night, with all funds going to our Bibles and Rice appeal.

More than 200 people attended the dinner which included numerous speakers. Among them were speakers from Nigeria, India and Malaysia. Each international speaker outlined the extent of persecution in their country and what VOM is doing to help.

We would like to extend thanks to all our guests, LCC staff and others who assisted on the night. Above all we thank God for His hand in the preparations and successful outcome of the evening.

    I hope you will ‘forgive’ my openness in sharing.

    When I read articles from VOM, I wonder if we are being fed (told) untruths (lies) or exaggeration to encourage us to make donations.
    At times when I say to myself, “It is probably true”, knowing the general conditions of some countries as we hear it on the local news. Then I find myself overwhelmed – “How should I pray?”
    “What difference can I make?”
    “It would feel horrible to be that powerless and have persecution pending at any moment?”

    Does VOM have an office here in WA, or is there anyone locally whom I could meet?

    Thank you.

      Hello Michael,

      The news we report can be difficult for us in the free West to fully comprehend, particularly as the mainstream media rarely reports on persecution of Christians. Voice of the Martyrs however is one of many organisations which help support the persecuted church (others include Open Doors, Barnabas Fund, Christians Faith and Freedom) so if you have any concerns as to whether persecution of Christians is as bad as we say, it would be a good idea to look online to verify, for your own peace of mind.

      The most valuable and powerful thing we all can do for persecuted Christians is to pray and it’s the first thing they ask for. Please consider subscribing to our weekly Pray for the Persecuted Church emails here vom.com.au/subscribe. Each week you will receive three reports on persecution and prayer points for each.

      We do not have an office in WA however, one of our staff maybe visiting your state later in the year, perhaps a meeting could be arranged, where are you located?
