It is common for us here at The Voice of the Martyrs to encourage our friends to write to and on behalf of those who are imprisoned for their faith. This week, we encouraged you to write to David and Fiona Fulton, missionaries who are being detained unjustly in Gambia, West Africa.
In our day and age when sending an email or text messaging is the norm, actually writing a letter seems old fashioned and inconvenient. But in the cause of advocacy and encouraging Christian prisoners, it still remains the most effective (and in some cases, the only) method of communicating your solidarity and concern for those who are in bonds for Christ's sake.
We have spent a lot of time in the past year, updating our guidelines on how to write to and on behalf of Christians in prison. You will find links to them on our website. I just updated a couple of the pages today. This is an ongoing and important task for us here at The Voice of the Martyrs and we urge you to join us in this vital ministry.
So take a look at our online advocacy resources, download our latest prisoner's list, Doing Time for God, and let know how often you write letters to Christian prisoners by responding to our poll below.
