Writing Letters to Authorities on Behalf of Christians Imprisoned for their Faith
Voice of Persecuted Christians
You may wonder if your letters or cards will make any difference to a persecuted Christian in a country many miles away, especially if they are not even written in their native language. When we put this question to the daughter of a Chinese pastor who was imprisoned for four years for printing Bibles she said, ‘One drop of rain doesn’t make any difference, but all together they make a storm.’
So be encouraged! Your letters and cards, along with many others, can and do make a world of difference to persecuted Christians as proof to them – and the authorities – that they are not forgotten. Letters and cards to prisoners are often a strong witness to those who open them to censor them. Lonely, isolated prisoners are often tormented by guards who tell them that no one knows about their suffering, and their faith comes under great pressure. Receiving a letter or card from someone is a practical demonstration of love and helps to keep their faith strong.
