Send Hope to the Persecuted, this Christmas

We have only a few days left to deliver Christmas relief packages, much needed supplies and nutrition to those in desperate need. VOP is on the ground in Nigeria and Thailand. This Christmas, join hands with us to spread the love of Jesus. We’re planning an outreach for a large number of Christians in a refugee camp in Nigeria and Christians detained at the notorious Immigration Detention Center in Bangkok.  If you feel led to help, please consider our mission and donate, today. Go with us to Thailand through your blessings and share the joy of Christmas with these dear brothers and sisters who have suffered so much. God bless you and your families. May your Christmas be filled with much joy as you celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ, our dear Lord and Savior.

Together with your generous help, we can reach the goal to alleviate horrific suffering. In darkness and desperation, let us serve in love, with open arms and giving hands to provide light and hope.

Child of Persecuted Family is Very Sick—Can You Give Him Hope?

Christian child in desperate need of medical care.

Christian child in desperate need of medical attention.

(Voice of the Persecuted) 10 yr. old John and his Christian family fled severe persecution for their faith in Pakistan to seek refuge and asylum in Thailand. But sadly, they’ve lived in misery, fear and sickness for over two years in a system that’s failing them. They still have another year before their UNHCR case interview, but there is no guarantee this scheduled appointment will take place. It’s common for case reviews to be postponed for another year and often postponed again. John’s father is a diabetic who also suffers hypertension (high blood pressure). He grieves for his children as he legally has no way to provide shelter, nutrition and the medical care they so desperately need. The family holds the UNHCR asylum certificate, but the children cannot even attend school because they are considered illegal immigrants by the Thai government. Thailand has been unwilling to work through the asylum process with the UNHCR. It’s a dreadful situation for the victims, particularly Pakistani Christians.

Voice of the Persecuted

Most asylum seekers cannot afford to purchase the necessary hygiene products and nutritious food needed in their diet to stay well. The children lack the necessary nutrients to grow and remain healthy. Whole families hide out in their cramped, one room apartments with no sunlight to stay out of sight of the authorities. Anytime they leave, they’re at risk of arrest and the Immigration Detention Center, a vile, despicable place! It is no wonder they are prone to sickness in these conditions.

John and his siblings are extremely thin. Their case is on our critical list. The boy has suffered illness after illness since arriving in Thailand. Last year, he spent 10 days in the hospital being treated for a severe infection due to a parasite. Voice of the Persecuted covered the cost of his treatment and hospital stay. You may recognize him from our prior report. As the photo shows, he is plagued yet again by another infection on the back of his head. We are also extremely concerned by the news that he has developed a large lump on his neck. This child must be seen by a doctor right away, but we need your help! This family is also in dire need of a monthly sponsor, but no one has stepped forward as yet.

Contact us for more information about sponsorship at: info@voiceofthepersecuted.org

In nearly every disaster or crisis, we have seen Christian missions as the backbone of relief efforts. Often, the only relief victims ever see comes from Christians shining the light in darkest hours (remember Haiti). In a world afraid of looking intolerant, suffering Christians who are likely the most vulnerable,  have been pushed to the back burner. That’s why Voice of the Persecuted is serving the persecuted and children like John. We are united with them in Christ our Lord, but we too are failing them. Sadly, the Church as a whole is lacking. What would Jesus want us to do for our brothers and sisters suffering for his sake? The answer is easy, “Love and care for your brothers and sisters.”

This child is counting on us. If he has help when he’s hungry or ill, his chances of being scarred by long suffering in Thailand drops significantly. It is a great time of crisis for this family. The world is not offering this young boy any hope.  But in Christ, as his hands and feet, we can! Help us to give John the medical attention he needs and a new day with a healthy start. The opportunity to experience the love of the Body, to be encouraged and see God answer his prayers. When generous people like you offer aid through your financial gifts, you go with us into the trenches and lives are saved. And even in the greatest of trials, their future looks brighter and the Lord is praised. Oh, how is He praised!

If you or your church can help with his medical care or would like to sponsor this family, please don’t delay. We are a small mission and unable to provide the ongoing monthly needs of the many families asking for help. This family has acutely suffered while waiting for a sponsor for over a year.

Please pray

  • For persecuted Christian families suffering in Thailand.
  • For this child to quickly heal and stay free of disease. That he will never again have go to bed hungry.
  • Pray he and his family will be blessed with a sponsor who can help them survive.
  • Pray for all Christian asylum seekers in Thailand. That the government will have a change of heart.
  • That the UNHCR will expedite their interviews so they may go to a welcoming nation with the opportunity to provide for themselves and worship our our freely and in peace.
  • Pray for the Lord to bless them with joy, to strengthen their faith and to feel His loving presence surround them.

Suffering in Persecution: Can You Sponsor This Baby and His Family?

This child belongs to one of the families Voice of the Persecuted’s Project 13:3 helps to survive in Thailand. He was born into extremely difficult conditions. Johan’s parents fled persecution in Pakistan to seek safety and asylum in Thailand. But the unfortunate circumstances waiting for them is more than most could possibly bare. Since 2014, they’ve been forced to hide from Thai authorities while they wait for the UNHCR to process their case. The office as scheduled their initial case interview for 2018. This little one’s father is unable to legally work to care for his new son. He also suffers from a skin infection he contracted during his stay at the Central Jail, then the Immigration Detention Center (IDC) after being arrested. It’s proven to be very difficult to cure. This father also suffered very harsh treatment during his stay at the jail, which housed hardened criminals.

When Johan was born, Voice of the Persecuted was able to provide everything needed to care for him, including rent, food for his parents and a month’s supply of formula and diapers. They are again unable to cover May’s room rent. Voice of the Persecuted has a waiting list of families designated with the most extreme needs. It is impossible to give each family monthly support without the help of those willing to sponsor them each month. Is God placing this family on your heart? Would you consider comforting Johan and his parents with monthly basic needs? Even a one-time gift will help to secure their housing for another month. They are in critical need for us, the Body of Christ to come to their aid. Please donate today, or contact us at info@voiceofthepersecuted.org for more information. Your love is appreciated more than you could ever know.

Please pray for persecuted Christian families suffering in Thailand. Pray the Thai government will soften their hearts towards them. And pray the UNHCR will find a way to speed up the unbearably long process of their asylum cases.

Together with your generous help, we can reach the goal to alleviate horrific suffering. In darkness and desperation, let us serve in love, with open arms and giving hands to provide light and hope.

PRAISE REPORT: One of the Chibok school girls has been found! 218 still missing

breaking News

(Voice of the Persecuted) It’s been over two years since 276 majority Christian girls were taken from their school in Chibok, Borno State by the Islamist militant group Boko Haram in Nigeria. 56 girls had managed to escape, but 219 remained in captivity. The militant group has been terrorizing Nigeria and targeting Christians in their campaign for an all Islamic Nigeria for the past for 7 years. They are currently ranked as the deadliest terrorist group in the world. According to the latest reports, one of the Chibok school girls has been found alone by members of a local vigilante group known as Civilian JTF(Joint Task Force). Apparently she was recognized by a civilian fighter. Since the Boko Haram uprising, local authorities have encouraged these civilian groups to be alert and to protect their villages, as the military did not have the ability to police their areas and often could not reach their villages during attacks.

A Chibok community leader has confirmed that the girl was rescued in the Sambisa Forest, near the border with Cameroon on Tuesday, May 18. The rescued girl, Amina Ali Nkek is from Mbalala village, which is south of Chibok. She was taken by the locals to a military base nearby. She will be protected by military personnel until further investigations are completed.

Emmanuel Ogebe, a Nigerian human rights lawyer who has been involved in the campaign to find the schoolgirls, also confirmed that Nkek had been found. He told VICE News she is believed to have been carrying a child.

As the global community stood behind France after the Charlie Hebdo jihadists attacks on January 7, 2015, world leaders expressed great sorrow and attended a march with an estimated 3.7 million people in a show of unity and solidarity following the terrorist attacks that claimed 17 lives.  During the same week n Nigeria, experienced an attack by Boko Haram militants took place on the town of Baga in Borno state. There were 2,000 casualties. Amnesty International described it as the terror group’s “deadliest massacre” to date. It was so horrific, local defense groups said they had to give up counting the bodies left lying on the streets.

Why isn’t the same level of outrage as in the Frace attack not given to the greater numbers of attack victims in Nigeria? We have confirmed from our sources on the ground that attacks continue nearly every other day on villages surrounding the Sambisa Forest—Boko Harams main hideout. Where’s the media coverage or global solidarity and concern? Where is the church?

The abduction of the mostly Christian Chibok schoolgirls garnered international attention in April 2014. The global campaign, #BringBackOurGirls was shared millions of times on social media. Sadly, it was only for a short while short attention spans focused on the latest headlines. For the most part, the girls were forgotten. I’ve heard someone sharing that all the girls were rescued. The media silence caused them to believe the crisis was over…..

We are so grateful the Chibok story received coverage, but many are completely unaware that for the past 7 years, thousands of North Nigerian women and children have been abducted and experienced the same as the Chibok girls. Victims who were fortunate to escape their captors have shared detailed accounts of the systematic rape, forced marriages, forced conversions, and slavery that women and girls are subjected to while being held. They are also used to aid the militants during attacks/raids on villages and used as decoys to draw out soldiers. The horrors of slaughter and beheading that they’ve witnessed is blood curdling. It’s also great concern that the young girls they have used as suicide bombers could be those who’ve been abducted. Please pray for those still in captivity and those recovering from the nightmare.

The great numbers of internal refugees (IDP’s internally displaced) is mind-boggling to say the least. Many have languished in camps for years. Little ones born in camps call it home having no knowledge of any other way of life. The children have not been able to attend school. The great needs of the masses take funding away for educating these little ones. It breaks my heart when we hear the stories of boys and girls dreaming of going back to their studies. Some have not been in a classroom for years.

Voice of the Persecuted is helping to care for Nigerian Christians suffering in IDP camps. There’s a great need for food, medicine and clean water. With your help, we have been able to build a contained fresh water well, supply bedding/mattresses, food and clothing and to provide medical care and prescriptions in a safe place. In the area we are working, nearly 10,000 Christians are in great need of our help. It is easy to believe others are standing in the gap to support them, but this is not the case. Too many of these dear ones go without the basics to survive. Funds available to care for them this month is short. If you have considered doing more for your brothers and sisters persecuted for Christ, now would be a great way to go on the mission with us through your gifts. No amount is too small to make a difference. Will you show them compassion this month?

We humbly ask and need your support to help alleviate their suffering. We pray God can use each one of us to do our part for His love to shine on these persecuted brothers and sisters in Nigeria. Any amount is greatly appreciated. If your church is being led to do more for our persecuted family, please contact us. We would be happy to send detailed updates of this relief project. Is God calling you to be a part of this important mission?

We are committed to being a VOICE for persecuted Nigerian Christians and bring them comfort, relief, and encouragement. We have committed to a long-term mission in Nigeria. When they are able to return home, we will be there to encourage and help rebuild villages and their lives. They will not be forgotten!

We want you to know that even in great hardship, they thank God and feel extremely blessed that He has kept His hand on orphan-306x4601them. They have been so encouraged and thank God for each one of you who have joined this mission through prayer and your support.

Together with your generous help, we can reach the goal to alleviate horrific suffering. In darkness and desperation, let us serve in love, with open arms and giving hands to provide light and hope.

Ukraine Post War: Victor & Natalia’s Story

“I truly feel that I am a part of the Body of Christ. And I know people are praying for me, not just here, but people in America, Germany, Russia. It’s like the Scripture says, how the entire body suffers when one member suffers.

Voice of the Persecuted is working to encourage and support our brothers and sisters suffering in extreme persecution. Too often, they’re  overlooked by governments and the global community at large. Yet, the modern-day persecution of Christians is one of the worst humanitarian crises in the world, today. Let us step up and in to help  care for our own. If we don’t, who will?

We need your partnership to continue the mission. Go with us through your gifts!

Together with your generous help, we can reach the goal to alleviate horrific suffering. In darkness and desperation, let us serve in love, with open arms and giving hands to provide light and hope.

European Parliament debates Nigeria and Boko Haram

george_odafe

Rev. George Odafe. African Diaspora for Freedom of Religion

(World Watch Monitor) A conference on religious radicalisation, Boko Haram and terrorism in Nigeria was held by the largest group in the European Parliament last week.

The European People’s Party Working Group on Inter-religious Dialogue’s conference on 3 May had two sessions: the first on the broader situation of Nigeria and the other on the threats and needs for peace and security in the region.

German MEP Joachim Zeller, who hosted the conference, said that even though the “Nigerian election and peaceful transition of power was a major achievement”, there is still a major threat in the north, where Christians and other minorities are being persecuted.

Each session had a panel with interventions of advocacy and civil society groups and experts on Boko Haram and Nigeria, including Esther Kattenberg, Advocacy Officer for Open Doors International (ODI), which partners with churches in Nigeria. She explained that the reports that appear in the media are “only the tip of the iceberg”, as “many violations go unreported”.

“It’s important to remark that not only Christians are suffering,” said Jane Ura, co-ordinator of the Africa Diaspora for Freedom of Religion, introducing the first panel. “There are also challenges for people with indigenous beliefs, and Muslims.”

Origins of violence

Professor Yusuf Turaki, chair of the Christian Association of Nigeria’s editorial committee for its recent declaration, ‘Nigeria Renew’, said most violence in Nigeria is “rooted in the British colonial social-economic structure”, as well as the lack of will of Nigeria’s political elite to change it and to “build an integrative society”. He said the British administration used conscripted soldiers from the two Islamic empires in the north to defeat the rest of the ethnic groups in the south.

Later, the number of Christians in northern Nigeria, where the former Islamic states existed, increased from 0 to 31%. He said the conflict is religious and economic.

“Boko Haram acts in a similar way to the Kanem-Bornu Empire of 1900,” Turaki said. “Their descendants are still the rulers of the area.”

Arne Mulders, ODI’s Research and Communications Manager for West and Central Africa and author of the report, ‘Crushed but not defeated, the impact of persistent violence on the Church in northern Nigeria’, said Nigeria suffered from the “religion and politics of a dominant class which wants to stay in power”.

Nigeria is complex because there are several perpetrators that use organised violence and are interlinked. Some conflicts are over land issues, but there is also a religious factor.

“There are ethno-politic and economic reasons, but the common denominator is religious,” said Mulders.

Nigerian pastor George Odafe talked about the links between Boko Haram and Fulani herdsmen, who attack farmers in the Middle Belt of Nigeria. He also warned about the dangers of famine and economic losses on exports, saying Fulani herdsmen are constantly destroying crops.

Recommendations

The ODI speakers presented their report on Nigeria, with a series of recommendations for the EU to put “pressure on Nigeria for equality before the law and to bring perpetrators to justice”.

The EU is a major donor to Nigeria, but “people are missing out on aid”, said ODI’s Kattenberg.

“Nigeria is an easy partner,” said Marcela Szymanski from Aid to the Church in Need, suggesting that although the government is not perpetrating the violent acts, it is doing little to prevent them. Therefore, Szymanski suggested, the EU “should rather give the money to civil society, which is acting on the ground”.

Mark Barkwick, from Human Rights Without Frontiers, talked about long-term solutions focusing on the factors that bring religious extremism, such as structural grievances.

“We need a strategy for counter-narratives, and the authorities should create political dialogue with certain factions of Boko Haram,” he said. “We are often too focused on security campaigns, but they often end up in abuses.”

Rev. Odafe, who works in the Archdiocese of Kaduna in northern Nigeria, said “pro-activity is needed”, especially when dealing with victims. “The average Nigerian comes for counselling to the pastor, but we are not psychologists,” he said.

He shared his personal testimony of running from a group of teenagers with machetes and hiding in a house in ruins. He said he saw the young men stopping a pregnant woman coming back from the market, ripping her womb open, taking out the foetus and placing it into her hands.

“I fainted,” he said, “and this is the kind of violence we have every day, even from teenagers.”

Temitope Olodo, an anti-terrorism expert, said many children want to join Boko Haram because “they are strong”, while “most of the jobless join terrorist groups”.

Voice of the Persecuted has confirmed with those on the ground that attacks are taking places every other day. The safety of those being asked to return to their villages is of great concern. Many of those Voice of the Persecuted are supporting are from areas still at great risk of attack. The crisis is far from over and will take time and help to get them back on their feet. Ther is also worry that Christian villages will be pushed to the back burner for government help. That Christian schools and churches will also not be considered. If the Nigerian Church in the North is to survive, we will need to come alongside them with support, much like the first century Christians did to survive. Are we up for the task? Yes! Let the world know us by our love for one another.

Pakistani Christians Trapped Under Inhumane Conditions – Where is the Church?

Pakistani Christian asylum seekers held in detention center like cattle. 

Voice of the Persecuted is not only helping in Nigeria but still working diligently for the Pakistani Christians suffering in Thailand. They need our prayers and they need our help. If you, your church or ministry group would like to sponsor a family in need or to offer a one-time gift, Voice of the Persecuted will be sure these persecuted ones are comforted by your generosity. These families spend most of their time in hiding and constant fear of arrest. They’re in desperate need of rent, food and medicine as many are suffering from ongoing illnesses, skin infections and disease. The children are too often malnourished. There are approximately 10,000 Pakistani Christians stuck in this crisis that can take 6 or more years. Their children are not allowed to attend school. What will become of their future?

Another danger in places like Thailand is sex trafficking. Thailand is known throughout the world for this booming industry. Many asylum seekers fear for their young daughters, that they may be abducted then sold. Knowing how vulnerable they are, many girls are constantly approached by traffickers trying to lure them in. A few weakened by desperation have fallen for their trap. Some will tell you, “I had no other choice.” How sad it is to lose even one sister to this life of abuse, simply because she could find no compassion from others.

Asylum seekers cannot legally work in Thailand to care for their families and are often arrested when caught working illegally. This puts a huge strain on the mother trying to care for her littles ones with no support. They are at great risk of being exploited. Raids are regularly held by Thai authorities in slum areas known to house these asylum seekers. At times, whole families have been detained in the Immigration Detention Center though they hold asylum seeker certificates from UNHCR. You would think this document could protect them, but not in Thailand. It’s a devastating and inhumane situation for them.  You see, they’re frequently held in overcrowded cells with one filthy toilet, and only served a soupy mix of water, cucumbers, and rice. The fee to bail them out is extremely high, 50,000 Thai Baht (approx. $1500 USD). Frequently they, particularly men, are held without bail for extended periods of time, even months.

We have been blessed with the ability to get food, baby formula and toiletries to those suffering in the IDC. Thank You to those who are helping to support that program of our Thailand mission. We were able to get a delivery of formula to the babies this month!  But the need is so great for the whole of Pakistani Christians fleeing persecution in Pakistan; then forced to endure the drawn out process of asylum in the unwelcoming nation of Thailand. Pray for them, pray for God to meet their needs, to give them hope and strength. And ask our LORD to send caring hands to help them.

But the need is so great for the whole of Pakistani Christians fleeing persecution in Pakistan, then forced to endure the drawn out process of asylum in the unwelcoming nation of Thailand. No human being should have to endure these conditions. The program is failing them and so are we when we ignore the cries of our brothers and sisters.  With all the churches in America alone, why do these brothers and sisters suffer? Surely we could be doing much more to help alleviate their misery. Pray for them, pray for their needs to be met and to give them hope and strength to endure. Ask the LORD to send caring hands to help them.

Voice of the Persecuted helps pay monthly living/medical expenses for families suffering the greatest need. More cases are continually brought before us, but it’s heartbreaking we are unable to help them all. With your love and support, we’re praying that many more of our brothers and sisters covered and comforted by the Body of Christ, us! But we can only do this with your help.

If you are feeling led to bring hope to Christians suffering in Thailand please consider the following:

  • Cover the monthly living expenses for a family in great need. (approx $250+/- based on family size)
  • Provide bail to protect a persecuted believer from rearrest for two years. ($1500 based on exchange rate)
  • Food deliveries for the nutritional needs of those detained in the IDC. ($50 provides 2 meals a day for 4 people weekly – personal hygienic products such as soap, toothbrushes and paste are also much-needed items.)
  • Donations of any amount are always needed and greatly appreciated.

Voice of the Persecuted is on the ground in Thailand. Come with us on the mission through your gifts!

Together with your generous help, we can reach the goal to alleviate horrific suffering. In darkness and desperation, let us serve in love, with open arms and giving hands to provide light and hope.

Nigerian Christians Praying for the American Church and Need Our Help

Nigerian Christians Photo property of Voice of the Persecuted Project 133 Nigeria

“We are praying for you in America!” A group of Nigerian Christians gathered to worship the Lord despite the hardships and atrocities they face.

(Voice of the Persecuted) This past weekend, Nigerian Christians listened to a sermon about letting go of bitterness and thoughts of revenge. To forgive and to have the heart of Jesus. They also prayed for us, the American Church!!! They are praying for our elections as what happens here also greatly affects them. They always remember us in their prayers, let us keep them daily in our prayers too. Pray also for Gideon, a courageous man of God and our refugee camp project leader. Much love for Brother Gideon and all our Nigerian brothers and sisters. Their faith is unshakable in a world that is shaken—a great witness for us in the West. They are so loving and giving, even sending Christmas cards and a video singing a carol for us. Our hearts and prayers are with them. To not only know them but to serve them is such a blessing.

These dear ones are suffering horrific atrocities by the Boko Haram and now endangered by the Fulani who have become emboldened by their collaboration with Boko Haram terrorists. Most have lost family members in the jihadists terror campaign. Please pray for peace in Nigeria and that these dear saints will soon be able to SAFELY go back home and start rebuilding their lives. Many have been living in refugee camps for years. Imagine what it must be like living in those conditions for so long.

At this time, it is still UNSAFE for those we aid to return to their villages. The Nigerian government is sharing they have beaten the terrorists. But they have NOT stopped the Boko Haram and now must seriously deal with the rising attacks by the Fulani. We have CONFIRMED attacks are still taking place EVERY OTHER DAY near the Sambisa, a Boko Haram stronghold. Where’s the media coverage???

If your able to help support the mission that is caring for these dear ones, please do! Their needs are immense. We’ve been asked to care for more, a new total of 10,000 displaced people. We really need your help.

No Gift Is Too Small to Make a Difference!

We are committed to being a VOICE for persecuted Nigerian Christians and bring them comfort, relief and encouragement. We have committed to a long-term mission in Nigeria. When they are able to return home. we will be there to help rebuild villages and their lives. They will not be forgotten!

We want you to know that even in great hardship, they thank God and feel extremely blessed that He has kept His hand on them. They have been so encouraged and thank God for each one of you who have joined this mission through prayer and your support.

Together with your generous help, we can reach the goal to alleviate horrific suffering. In darkness and desperation, let us serve in love, with open arms and giving hands to provide light and hope.
