Follow Up to International Day of Prayer

Posted on Sat, Nov 30, 2013

As a follow-up to our remembrance of

the International Day of Prayer for the

Persecuted church held on November 8th,

2013, the following is information on

how to write letters to prisoners in their

own language. Remember that these prisoners

are being held for the sole reason of

being Christian. Many countries do not

have the religious freedoms that we enjoy

in this country. To learn more, go online

to www.prisoneralert.com. There are

instructions on the website on how to

write to prisoners in their own language.

The website allows you to choose phrases

which can be translated and printed to be

mailed. There is also a section where

you email government officials on their

behalf. Writing letters of encouragement

are needed and well received. In cases

where prisoners are not given their letters,

they are often told by prison officials

how many letters have been received on

their behalf. This is a great encouragement

also. Some prisoners have been

released due to pressure from the outside

world when officials become aware of

our knowledge of the persecution.

This is an exercise that can be performed

by anyone who has access to the internet.

The letters are then mailed using international

postage ( approx. $1.10 current

price ). Please consider becoming involved

in aiding the persecuted church.

Remember those that are in bonds as

bound with them and those who suffer

adversity as being yourselves also in the

body.
