For the next 31 days I will be sharing a different charity with you. In this post I will include a little word from me, information about the charity, and how you can donate online to this charity.
My challenge for you (I am joining in too!): Is to help support the charity I feature in SOME way. You can do this by donating $5 to each charity I feature, or you can tweet the post I share on my blog, or share it on Facebook. My hope and prayer is that you will JOIN ME in spreading the word about the these awesome charities I will be sharing with you. So please pray about how you can help, and how you can be challenged this month to GIVE MORE.
Today;s Charity: Voice of the Martyrs
I first heard of Voice of the Martyrs when my husband requested a free copy of “Tortured for Christ.” Ministries like these, that give voices to those who otherwise would not be heard, are such a blessing to me and my family. I truly love the way Voice of the Martyrs has become an advocate for those who are being persecuted in the name of Jesus.
About Voice of the Martyrs:
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.

Our faith begins with what we know and believe about God. Our faith will carry us how far we are willing to let it take us. Faith is a choice and we need to begin by choosing to believe in Jesus and His power to move mountains, heal the sick, and save us from all our sins through His sacrifice on the cross.
