Examples

  • Kathy, from Utah, uses her website and art business, Redeeming Goods, to promote Christ and the persecuted family by donating a Bible through VOM for each digital art print sold.
  • Jeremy & Family, from Virginia, display information from the Prisoner Alert website and encourage American Christians to write letters to those believers that are in prison for their Christian witness.
  • Donna, from Pennsylvania, operated a table at a Regatta and was able to engage with many attendees that were inspired by the testimonies.
  • Steve & Virginia, from Oklahoma, created a display for their church lobby to keep the testimonies of the persecuted family available to the church membership.
  • Julie, from Texas, shares about the persecuted on a 30-minute local radio show every other week. She focuses on a restricted or hostile nation, providing background on the country and sharing stories of persecuted believers there. At the end of the show, she invites listeners into a time of prayer for that country and some of the believers whose testimonies were shared.
  • Paul, from Missouri, travels frequently and brings Special Issue newsletters to share with others as opportunities arise. He also leaves the newsletters in motel rooms, usually under the Bible in a drawer.
  • Monica, from California, shares the prayers from iCommitToPray.com with her church by placing them in a special persecution section of their church bulletin.
  • Maria, from Pennsylvania, shows Torchlighter videos to her children’s Sunday School class. In a letter to parents, she explains the testimony the children saw that Sunday and directs them to VOM’s persecution.com and kidsofcourage.com websites for more information to share with their children.
  • Don, from New Mexico, tells all the teachers and group leaders at his church that he is available to fill in when they need to be absent. When God opens the door for him to share, he supplements his Bible lessons with testimonies from persecuted believers.
  • David, from West Virginia, invites local pastors out for a cup of coffee or tea in order to build relationships and find out how he can pray for them. David shares what he has been praying for, including recent requests from VOM’s iCommitToPray.com. He then leaves the pastor with a Special Issue of the VOM newsletter and tells him or her how to learn more about persecuted Christians.
  • Hadassah, a VOICE from Illinois, creates a monthly bulletin board at her church using the current VOM Prayer Map that shows restricted and hostile countries. As she collects more prayer requests and/or testimonies through VOM’s newsletter or websites, she adds them to the board with a string connecting the request/testimony to the country of origin. She decorates the bulletin board with pictures from VOM newsletters.
