Remember the persecuted this summer (Part 4)

In the past weeks, we have shared suggestions on how you can take the message of the persecuted to heart, and how you can share the message with your family and local church. Today, we are suggesting ways that you can share the message with your larger community.

Grow your passion for the persecuted Church by joining VOM’s nationwide Volunteer Network. As a VOM volunteer, you will have the opportunity to share about our persecuted family with your local church or with area churches, schools, and in other settings. Each VOM volunteer is personally equipped and supported with ongoing training, resources, advice, and prayer. For more information visit our website or contact us.

Write letters to government officials to share the reality of persecution today. Politicians at both provincial and federal levels should be kept informed of incidents of persecution which often take place in countries with economic and diplomatic links to Canada. They should also be encouraged to take action within their respective spheres of influence. Equally, foreign governments should be made aware that those who have been imprisoned for their faith have not been forgotten about. For details on how to write these letters, visit our letter writing site.

Have other ideas you’d like to share? We’d love to hear from you. Please feel free to leave a comment below.
