About The Voice of the Martyrs
The Voice of the Martyrs is a nonprofit missions organization seeking to awaken the West to the persecution faced by our Christian brothers and sisters and to provide ways to stand with them. Our fellowship with persecuted Christians is two-fold: 1) helping with practical needs, such as food, clothing, shelter, and medical and legal assistance, and 2) serving with the persecuted as they advance God’s kingdom by providing them with Bibles, ministry tools, and support for pastors and lay workers.
The Voice of the Martyrs works in more than 60 nations where Christians face hostility and systematic persecution because of their faith in Jesus Christ. The ministry was founded in 1967 by Pastor Richard Wurmbrand and his wife, Sabina, both of whom suffered greatly at the hands of the communist Romanian authorities. Pastor Wurmbrand spent a total of 14 years in prison. His inspiring testimony of faith and perseverance is retold in his book Tortured for Christ.
Each month The Voice of the Martyrs publishes a four-color newsletter that shares the stories and testimonies of our Christian brothers and sisters, highlighting the persecution they endure because of their faith in Christ. Each newsletter also provides ways Christians in the West can get involved in helping them.
