Help Voice of the Martyrs Help Christians

Christians under assault by mobs or armies often leave their homes with nothing but the clothes on their backs. They are homeless and penniless. Frequently they are beaten and wounded. Voice of the Martyrs delivers food, clothing, Bibles and the important message of hope.

VOM comforts persecuted Christians reminding them that people like you around the world lift them up in prayer and stand as one with them.

A Book Worth Your Time

It is my privilege to review a book well worth your time to read if you have ever considered making a mission trip as a family. Read my review of Don’t Forget to Pack the Kids by Jill Richardson.
