Blog: DONATIONS AND PRAYER!  

Donna,


Earlier this month, I shared an update from Brother Andrew about the increasing persecution in our world today—especially where Islamic extremists have a strong or increasing hold.


Like you, I was inspired and encouraged by the story he told about Malo, the radical Muslim who came to know Christ because a Christian doctor had the boldness to share his faith with him. You can read Malo’s story here. Read Malo’s story>>


I know your heart is not only with new believers like Malo, but also with those believers like the Christian doctor who told him about Christ. Both groups of believers, baby Christians and new believers, need the support that Open Doors can provide them.


And right now, you and I have the opportunity to meet their spiritual and physical needs in a very real way. As Brother Andrew shared, we’re currently awaiting funding that will...



  • help Iraqi Christians who suffer greatly having lost everything at the hands of extremists

  • support a new network that is capable of delivering Bibles and Christian resources into a country that is severely persecuting Christians

  • provide training and support, including safe houses, that helps our suffering brothers and sisters remain a powerful witness to family and friends


The cost for these and other projects this month is $230,500. So will you pray with me that God would stir the hearts of His people to give generously to meet this current need? And will you also consider giving a gift as well?

Thank you for your generosity.  Your gifts and prayers are invaluable to our brothers and sisters living on the frontlines of persecution!


In Christ,


Carl Moeller
President/CEO, Open Doors USA

{ else }   Blog: THE MOST IMPORTANT PETITION: IF YOU ONLY SIGN ONE PETITION MAKE IT THIS ONE!  

Dear Donna,

This is a crucial year in the fight to preserve religious freedom worldwide. Open Doors USA will be helping to lead the advocacy effort at the United Nations to prevent the Defamation of Religions resolution from passing through our Free to Believe Campaign. But we need your help. Please sign on to our petition to register your disapproval of the resolution. The campaign already has recieved an amazing response with over 2,600 signatures. But we need to keep the momentum going.

The Defamation of Religions Resolution seeks to criminalize words or actions as attacks against a particular religion. As incredible as it sounds, passing this resolution could allow a Christian to be persecuted under UN approval. We need you to voice your protest of this resolution.


The resolution protects a faith rather than individuals who hold a faith, which goes against the very purpose of human rights in international law. The result is that this resolution gives UN sanction to Muslim majority countries to persecute Christians and other religious minorities for not sharing the same beliefs as Muslims. It also provides legitimacy to these countries' blasphemy laws which are often used to accuse, imprison, and even murder Christians.


While Defamation of Religions Resolutions have been introduced and passed in previous years, it is up again this year for re-authorization. Policy experts at the United States Commission on International Religious Freedom believe we have a real opportunity to defeat it this year. Members of Congress and non-profit organizations will be organizing to urge countries to vote NO on Defamation of Religions Resolution.


Please sign the Free to Believe Petition today! Many signatures gives our advocacy team the backing to approach these countries and ask them to change their vote.

Advocating with you,

Lindsay Vessey

Advocacy Director

Blog: MY APOLOGIES!  
MY APOLOGIES! CLICK A BIBLE IS GOOD! WHAT I SHOULD HAVE SAID, IS THAT THAT THERE ARE ALSO OTHER WAYS TO DONATE BESIDES CLICK A BIBLE. CLICK A BIBLE IS RUN BY A VERY GOOD ORGANIZATION. PEOPLE THAT REALLY CARE ABOUT THE PERSECUTED CHRISTIAN.AND THEY HAVE DONATED MANY, MANY BIBLES TO MANY CHRISTIANS WHO OTHER WISE WOULD NOT HAVE BIBLES. BUT I ALWAYS WORRY ABOUT THE UNKNOWN PASTORS WHO AREN'T REACHED BY THE LARGER ORGANIZATIONS. THEY ALSO NEED BIBLES AND PRAYER.
SO I HOPE NOBODY GIVES UP ON CLICK A BIBLE BECAUSE THEY ARE A GOOD GROUP.

Blog: Do you care?  
If you do not care about the third world ministers of poverty stricken countries, you don't about Christians nor do you care about Jesus! Read the New Testament and find that out for yourself. Click a bible doesn't help them at all. In fact, with click a bible you do not get to choose where your bible goes to, who gets it or what kind of bible you get. The reason I chose a desert motif is because that is where most persecuted Christians are and because that is where Jesus walked.
What does blue and green symbolize? Someone who doesn't care about the persecuted Christian not the church builder, the desert traveler, the pastor who is unknown and uncared for accept for the few who know and see the great sacrifice and faithful service he has given. Most of these ministers are small when it comes to reputation, but they have the largest hearts of all. Americans are so very arrogant, thinking they are the only ones that matter.  If you can not support the little known church builders in third world countries, you are not supporting persecuted Christians, and if you can not support the persecuted Christians, you are not supporting Jesus!

Man of faith
Serafín Alarcón


A strong man exercises itself to maintain his body in form.
A faith man exercises single the knees.
A strong man does not fear to him to anything.
A faith man does not fear to recognize his doubts.
A strong man walks firm footsteps.
A faith man knows that God will maintain to him if it falls.
A strong man does not encounter over the same stone.
A man of faith of his errors always learns.
A strong man is safe of itself.
A faith man gets dressed grace.
A strong man believes in himself.
A single man of faith trusts only in God.
