Most Canadian Christians have little or no idea of the persecution facing their brothers and sisters around the world. Even fewer know or believe that they have a God-given mandate to remember them and stand with them in their afflictions.
Pastor Richard Wurmbrand never forgot the mandate that he had been given by the Persecuted Church in Romania as they insisted, despite his objections, that he leave the country in order to raise a voice on their behalf! Upon arriving in the U.S., in October 1967, with $100, an old typewriter, and 500 names and addresses, Richard Wurmbrand published the first issue of The Voice of the Martyrs newsletter. This small publication was dedicated to communicating the testimonies and trials facing our brothers and sisters in restricted nations worldwide. In obedience to this God-given mandate, The Voice of the Martyrs today continues the legacy of Pastor Wurmbrand in raising a voice for persecuted Christians around the world.
