The vision for lettersofchrist.com began with a passion to
use the internet to help raise the awareness about our brothers
and sisters in the persecuted church.
If you have benefited from this website, please take a moment
to consider the ministry of Open Doors that strategically
helps the persecuted church around the world.
Excerpt from letter
by Brother Andrew, founder, Open Doors:
...And Bibles are in such short
supply, he says, that "only those who have been Christians
for at least two years and are deeply committed to Christ
are permitted to receive one."
...[A coworker] saw a copy of the Children's Bible for the
first time recently and wrote, "We need 10,000 of these
Bible storybooks. Every time my coworkers ask me for children's
materials, I respond, 'We must pray.'"
"We have many young new converts here... They
thirst for the Word of God so much. But we cannot
provide a Bible to each of them, even though they urge us.
We can only tell them to pray to God and
ask Him to provide a Bible to them one day."
All they can do is pray. But that is all they need
to do. They know -- and we know -- that the Father hears and
answers every prayer.
Through the ministry
of Open Doors, for only $4.00, you can send a Bible to a Christian
in the persecuted church.
I have been
aware of the ministry of Open Doors with Brother Andrew
since the mid-1970s. It has been my observation that this
organization represents a unique and courageous style of
ministry, all the while modeling uncompromising integrity,
strong vision, and incredible faith.
We who are free to worship and serve our Lord must never
forget those who are not. Open Doors with Brother Andrew
is a splendid organization that has, for more than four
decades, provided unselfish leadership in ministry to those
around the world who suffer for their faith in Jesus Christ.
