Coming up: Women's conference in Edmonton

Christian women are suffering for their witness in nations hostile to Christ. Some are incarcerated in prison cells, without their basic needs being met. Others are forced to labour under great duress. Still, many are subordinated and sexually abused, discriminated against and mistreated.

Release Women, a ministry of The Voice of the Martyrs, seeks to connect women in Canada with persecuted women worldwide.

Our upcoming "Holding to the Hope" conference, based on Hebrews 10:23-24, will include a time of worship, prayer and letter writing. Guest speakers include Emma Dipper, the Release Women Coordinator for our sister mission in the UK, and Takoosh Hovsepian, an Iranian woman whose husband, Haik, was murdered for his Christian activities.

Event details are as follows:

October 15, 2011
9:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.
Northgate Baptist Church
13208-95 Street NW
Edmonton, AB  T5E 3Y4

Please make plans to join us! All women, from teenagers to senior adults, are invited. Kindly RSVP with your name and the number attending by phoning our office or emailing us at releasewomen@vomcanada.org. There will be sandwiches available for a free-will offering with proceeds going towards a Release Women project.
