(www.persecution.com) The Voice of the Martyrs is a non-profit, inter-denominational organization dedicated to assisting the persecuted church worldwide. VOM was founded in 1967 by Pastor Richard Wurmbrand, who was imprisoned in Communist Romania for 14 years for his faith in Christ. His wife, Sabina, was imprisoned for three years. In the 60s, 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 through the following main purposes: 1. To encourage and empower Christians to fulfill the Great Commission in areas of the world where they are persecuted for their involvement in propagating the gospel of Jesus Christ. We accomplish this by providing Bibles, literature, radio broadcasts, medical assistance, and other forms of aid. 2. To give relief to the families of Christian martyrs in these areas of the world. 3. To equip local Christians to love and win to Christ their enemies who are opposed to the gospel in countries where believers are actively persecuted for their Christian witness. 4. To undertake projects of encouragement, helping believers rebuild their lives and Christian witness in countries that have formerly suffered Communist oppression. 5. To emphasize the fellowship of all believers by informing the world of atrocities committed against Christians and by remembering their courage and faith.
South Sudan: VOM Provides Much-Needed Aid
Believers in South Sudan celebrated the founding of their new nation last year after it won independence from Arab- and Muslim-dominated Sudan. The Voice of the Martyrs continues to support Christians in South Sudan through community development efforts and by providing relief supplies and other needs.
Our partner in the medical clinic wrote that "VOM continues to be a strong partner with [us] in Rumbek East County. Drug supplies are coming every year into our program from VOM with active transport to South Sudan."
Last year in Sudan, VOM also helped drill water wells for two communities, set up a chicken farm to support indigenous missionaries and provided support to train 24 pastors. Thank you for your part in blessing Christians in South Sudan.
