A peek at August’s newsletter

This weekend, I have been proofreading the first proof of our August newsletter and I am really exciting.  Our layout artists have really outdone themselves this month. And the content.. my wife was really touched by the feature article recalling the story of a family in Colombia whose devotion to God led to… well, I’m not going to spoil the ending by telling! 

But let me give you a sneak peek at our August newsletter for three reasons:

  1. So that you can look forward to real blessing if you are already subscribed to receive it.
  2. You will consider subscribing right away to our newsletter if you are not presently receiving it so that you can get a copy. It’s free, by the way!
  3. You will let others know that they should subscribe or, alternately, send us their names and addresses and we will offer them a free subscription along with an offer to receive a free book or DVD.

Here’s a sample of what’s coming up in the August edition of The Voice of the Martyrs Newletter:

aug09nl An extreme devotion (feature article)
Threatened by Colombian guerrillas, Dora Lily and her husband, Ferley, prepared for a final evening devotion time with their three children. The couple then spent all night in prayer and fasting. Would God spare their lives? And who would take care of their children?

From the CEO
Read from our CEO how “some plant, while others water” as The Voice of the Martyrs has been serving persecuted Christians in Colombia for the past decade.

My strength, my song: A refugee's story
Meet “Miriam”, a refugee to Canada fleeing persecution in Eritrea, as she shares her joy in Christ and her pain at being separated from her husband who languishes in prison for his faith.

Living in the shadow of the cross: biblical insights for daily living
For those undergoing persecution for their faith and witness for Christ, chapter 7 is the most comforting of all of the visions recorded in the book of Revelation. While providing warning to the spiritually complacent, above all this chapter provides strength to those reeling under the pressure of tribulation.

Prayer diary
A new brand new feature! Daily prayer specifically based on this month’s newsletter that will equip you to intercede in a new way for the Persecuted Church around the world

Don’t miss this edition!!
