IDOP Unites Believers in Prayer and Support for Children’s Bibles

On Sunday, Nov. 9, churches around the world will focus on prayer and support for 100 million believers who are being persecuted for their faith in Jesus Christ. The International Day of Prayer for the Persecuted Church (IDOP) is one of the largest prayer events in the world and has heightened awareness of persecuted Christians since its inception in 1996. The need is so great that Open Doors is including a special IDOP giving campaign to provide 100,000 children’s and youth Bibles. The average American household owns four Bibles but Bibles are a precious, and sometimes scarce, treasure in the homes of many Christians living in restrictive countries.

“A church’s financial support of this campaign will make a real difference as it only costs $5 to send one Bible to build a child in his or her young faith.” says Jane Huckaby, Vice President of Program Services for Open Doors USA. “And most importantly, the church in America can bring them the one hope on which they can stand strong.”

Request a free IDOP kit  from Open Doors on our website for your church or small group, or sponsor Bibles for youth today.   

Prayer Points:

  • Pray for Saba Masih to have courage to speak the truth about her forced marriage to Amjad Ali.
  • Pray for the Pakistani girls’ uncle, Raheel, who is receiving death threats for trying to get his niece Saba to be rightfully returned to her parents.
  • Please unite with other believers around the world who will be praying on Sunday, Nov. 9, for persecuted Christians.
  • Pray that many Christians will have the compassion to donate Bibles for persecuted children.  
  •  

Praying with you, 

Christina and the Prayer Force Team

Dear ministry partner,

In the wake of China's earthquake, hundreds of thousands of believers are not only struggling to get their own homes back together, they are also struggling to put their church families back together. Many have no safe place to worship or fellowship.

As part of ongoing relief efforts, Campus Crusade's partners within this nation have developed a strategy to help restore churches damaged by the quake. To learn more, including how you can be a part of rebuilding churches in China, click here.

Or visit: http://give2.ccci.org/featured/china-churches-ct5

Thank you so much for your prayerful consideration.

Blessings in Christ,

Dear Friend,

Millions of Chinese are coming to Christ every year. And when someone in China comes to faith in Jesus Christ, the one thing they plead for is a Bible.

And now we have been offered a $10,000 Challenge Grant to provide these desperately needed Bibles! But we need your help to meet this challenge!

While Chinese officials allow Bibles to be printed in China, the number they allow to be printed falls millions short of what is actually needed.

That’s why Open Doors has set a goal to send at least 4,000 urgently needed Bibles to children in China over the next four months… and now… if we meet this $10,000 Challenge Grant… we can meet this goal!

But we need your help… which is why I’m asking you to give an online gift to Open Doors today.

Through your gift, you’ll help deliver Bibles to Chinese Christians who are suffering for their faith. You’ll be giving hope and encouragement to persecuted brothers and sisters who so desperately need it!

So thank you for your gift. And thank you for standing with those who are suffering the most for their faith.

Baltimore, May 16, 2008 -- Lutheran World Relief has already assisted 100,000 people on the ground in Myanmar (Burma) in response to the fatal Cyclone Nargis that reeked havoc two weeks ago. LWR is able to do this work through our partnership with Action by Churches Together (ACT) International, a consortium of faith based organizations.

By using long standing relationships with partners in the area LWR and ACT have been successful in overcoming the difficult challenges of providing humanitarian relief in the area. Resources such as clean water, emergency food and non-food items have been mobilized to reach those most in need.

"Relief efforts are underway, and the number of people severely affected by this tragedy is growing daily’ said Michael Kauder, Lutheran World Relief’s Emergency Response Program Manager, ‘It is critically important that we continue our efforts to provide relief and recovery to the most vulnerable communities."

The official death toll was raised again today to 77,738 with at least 55,917 people still missing, with speculations of even higher numbers. The United Nations is reporting that 2.5 million people are in need of urgent care and assistance, without immediate aid the death toll will only continue to climb.


WHO IS LWR? Lutheran World Relief, an international nonprofit organization, works to end poverty and injustice by empowering some of the world's most impoverished communities to help themselves. With partners in 35 countries, LWR seeks to promote sustainable development with justice and dignity by helping communities bring about change for healthy, safe and secure lives; engage in Fair Trade; promote peace and reconciliation; and respond to emergencies. LWR is headquartered in Baltimore, Maryland and has worked in international development and relief since 1945.

Lutheran World Relief is a ministry of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA), The Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod (LCMS), individuals and parish groups in international relief, development, advocacy and social responsibility.

Update on Myanmar Tragedy from Vision International College Australia

Vision has 6 colleges in Myanmar. 5 in Yangon and 1 in Mandaly. Please pass this email on to as many as you can, lets see what we can achieve in Myamar. We are attempting to raise funds to help these people and I am appealing to all of our students and contacts, past and present to help.

Since we began our small effort to raise funds for Myanmar we have been amazed at the response. In the first three days, in spite of some huge proplems with the internet we raised $2,000.00.

Funds are still comming in and our plea has been picked up by two newspapers. But the Tragedy continues.

I have created a page on our website dedicated to this tragedy and we now have our own dedicated secure site to recieve funds.

Please go to this link: MYANMAR APPEAL where you can read our one page update on Myanmar and there are links to news on the situation.

You can go directly to our support page if you prefer which is MYANMAR APPEAL.

All of the money we raise will go directly into the hands of the people on the ground to help people in the streets and suburbs. We can do that as one of my collegues and good friends from Myanmar is here on a ministry trip and will return with the money you give us for them.

If you donate you will not be able to claim tax deductibility for your generosity. While we are a tax exempt organization we do not have tax deductibility. We will provide you with receipts and the assurance that the money will go to the people of Myanmar.

Dear Donna,

More aid is needed.

Oxfam's local partners are on the ground, providing aid where it's most needed – we need your help.

Donate to Oxfam's Myanmar Cyclone Relief and Rehabilitation Fund.

In the aftermath of Cyclone Nargis – which struck Myanmar on May 3, washing away entire communities – conditions remain dire for millions of people. Food and water shortages are rapidly increasing the risk of disease, and more bad weather threatens those who have survived.

Rain from another storm is already falling in Myanmar, with up to 5 inches to come, further worsening the situation.

Oxfam, through its five partner organizations in Myanmar, has responded with direct aid, but we need your help – especially given the scope of the disaster. Our partner organizations have already been able to help more than 68,000 people and are spending more than $100,000 a day. While the funds we've raised are getting through, they are not yet sufficient to the task at hand.

We've committed to providing an initial $1.8 million in resources to respond to this crisis. We cannot provide this support on our own.

Please click here today and make a secure online donation to our Myanmar Cyclone Relief and Rehabilitation Fund.

LWR staff members have also begun exploring other possible partnerships in Myanmar (Burma) that would enable LWR to reach even more of the most vulnerable people.

As the official death toll was raised today to 31,938, experts continued to estimate that as many as 100,000 died in the disaster. The United Nations has said that between 1.2 and 1.9 million people are in dire need of food, water, medicines, and shelter, and relief experts warned that starvation, dehydration and disease could cause a second wave of casualties.

“Relief workers have very little time to head off this health crisis,” said LWR’s president and CEO, John Nunes. “Our financial support will enable our partners on the ground to quickly procure needed supplies within the country and get them to those who need them most. While we are pleased to provide this initial $50,000 to our partners,” he added, “The needs are still great, and more funds are needed to adequately respond to this disaster.”

Baltimore, May 12, 2008 — Lutheran World Relief today pledged $50,000 to support the response of the global aid alliance Action by Churches Together (ACT) International in the aftermath of the devastating cyclone that struck Myanmar (Burma) on May 3.

The preliminary response will aim to assist at least 10,000 families through water, shelter and cash for work programs. And in the coming weeks, that effort will increase, building on LWR’s experience from the 2004 tsunami and our partners’ expertise to provide short and medium–term assistance.

While some of LWR’s partners in ACT, a global alliance of faith-based aid agencies, attempt to gain greater access to the country, others are already on the ground, prepared to assist the heavily damaged southern region.

In the summer of 1999, a twenty one year old college student named Michael Job was killed in India by fanatical Hindus. His father was well known evangelist and Christian worker, Dr. P.P. Job. The fanatics did not like Dr. Job or his Christian message, so they killed his son.

Dr. Job was devastated ­ but not broken. He responded to the hatred by starting an orphanage unlike any other in India.

  • This orphanage is only for girls ­ strange enough in a culture that doesn't value girls.
  • And even more unusual ­ this orphanage is only for girls of persecuted and martyred Christians.

Today the Michael Job Center for Orphan Girls is a dynamic refuge for hundreds of girls of persecuted families from all over the Indian sub-continent.

Each child that comes to The Michael Job Center is a vision of hope for the future ­ a hope that is born out of sorrow and strengthened with love.

But more children are waiting! Sponsor an orphan girl for just $25.00 a month and you will prepare the way for more girls of persecuted Christians to be rescued from a life of poverty and hopelessness.
