Encourage Persecuted Christians

In a previous post, I talked about how I signed up for a free magazine by The Voice of the Martyrs--in case you do not know what The Voice of the Martyrs is, please visit

In church a few months or so ago, the Pastor had told us about how we can pick up a packet on the table in the foyer to write and send a letter of encouragement to a Christian who is being persecuted in another country.  So, I picked up two letters--one for me and one for my husband--we both signed our names to each letter, and I mailed it to the designated Christian in prison.  It made me feel so good to know that I could bless someone--many miles away--who is putting their life on the line for Him!

With that said, please visit, and click on "Write an encouraging letter" to show your love and support.  When you type your letter to the Christian prisoner, there is a tool on the Web site designed to translate what you write in the prisoner's native tongue.

So, bring a smile :) to someone's face, and make their day!  We all know how good it feels to get a nice letter from someone.  Think of how an encouraging letter might make someone feel who might be in a dark prison!  Be a light!
