Advocacy

As I’ve mentioned in previous posts and pages, I was inspired to start this blog during my volunteer work at Open Doors. While I have expanded this blog to include more than just news updates from Open Doors, I still fully support this company and would like to share some of the amazing campaigns they have going on the next couple of months.

1) Pray. Join Open Doors for the International Day of Prayer on Nov. 8. You can request a free prayer kit and use it to spread the word at your church, bible study or college campus. Not everyone can donate money or go on a missions trip to support the persecuted church, but we can all pray.

2) Text a Bible. Open Doors has a great on going campaign called text a Bible. Its as easy as it sounds. Text the word “Bible” to 20222. Reply “yes” to the confirmation text and your done. Five dollars will be charged to your next phone bill, and you’ve just placed a Bible in the hands of a Christian desperately needing daily encouragment. Visit the Open Doors website for more information.

3) Blog. Join the Open Doors Persecution Blog Network and help spread the word about the plights of persecuted Christians, praise reports from Christians worldwide, ways to advocate and make a political difference in the right for religious freedom, ways to pray and ways to donate.

 

Of course it wouldn’t be Headliner Wednesday without some headlines. Here is what is going on in the world:

  1. Tsunami hit the Samoan Islands today
  2. With so many negative headlines in the world, I love it when I find a positive one. A church in Indonesia recently won the legal battle to worship in thier own building.
  3. Pastor in India seriously wounded, Hindu extremeist suspected

Orissa Advocacy

To wrap up our week on India and Orissa I’d like to tell you about an easy way you can help bring justice to Orissa Christians.  Representative Trent Franks (R-CA) and Representative Emmanuel Cleaver (D-MO) have jointly sponsored a letter to the Chief Minister of Orissa, Navin Patnaik.  You can send a letter to your representative asking him or her to sign the letter to the Chief Minister of Orissa.  According to Open Doors, who is hosting this campaign, 11 U.S. Representatives have signed on to the letter so far. The more support the letter has, the greater the pressure is placed on the Chief Minister to take action on behalf of persecuted Christians in Orissa.

Just click on the link below. It will take you to a prewritten letter. You may change the wording or keep it. Fill in your name, click the send button and your done! It will only take five minutes of your time but it could have a long lasting impact on persecuted Christians in Orissa

The purpose of the blog

To EDUCATE, ENLIGHTEN and ENCOURAGE. To be a voice to those who have none, a voice that is LOUDER than their persecution, oppression and pain. A righteous voice that is LOUDER than the enemy.
