It Could Be Us Some Day!

Hopefully you noticed that I have a new "widget" over there on the right of the screen...its a weblog from The Voice of the Martyrs giving news updates about the persecuted church around the world. 

The Voice of the Martyrs is a non-profit, inter-denominational Christian organization dedicated to assisting the persecuted church worldwide. VOM was founded in 1967 by Pastor Richard Wurmbrand, who was imprisoned 14 years in Communist Romania for his faith in Christ. His wife, Sabina, was imprisoned for three years. In the 1960s, Richard, Sabina, and their son, Mihai, were ransomed out of Romania and came to the United States. Through their travels, the Wurmbrands spread the message of the atrocities that Christians face in restricted nations, while establishing a network of offices dedicated to assisting the persecuted church. The Voice of the Martyrs continues in this mission around the world today.

I've been reading some of Richard and Sabina Wurmbrand's books over the last few weeks and have been woken up to the reality of the persecuted church that exists around the world today and the fact that we never know when we might find in ourselves in this situation!!

Hebrews 13:3:
Remember them that are in bonds, as bound with them;
and them which suffer adversity, as being yourselves also in the body.
