Persecution can be found around the globe, but it is most extremely found in the countries listed on the World Watch List. Believers living in these countries endure trials every day for their faith. Their faith is costly.
As a reader connected with our United States base, you may see a gap between those experiencing extreme persecution and yourself. Is there anything you could do, whether pray or support, that would make a difference? Would anything I did really matter in the lives of the persecuted?
YES! If you are asking yourself these questions, we have a few unique opportunities that we would love for you to jump into.
Volunteering at Open Doors is a way you can make a huge impact. We have a few different Christian volunteer opportunities that may be right up your alley:
