For those of you who were in our Sunday service on Nov. 8, you'll recall we participated in the International Day of Prayer for the Persecuted Church, standing with our brothers and sisters around the world who face discrimination, intimidation and even violence for their beliefs.  As a follow-up to that time, we encourage you to check out two very worthwhile websites focused on revealing the persecution of Christians worldwide:  Open Doors and Voice of the Martyrs.  Both have a plethora of resources to help you know how to pray for and support specific countries and believers who are facing these challenges.  

Continue to remember those in prison as if you were together with them in prison, and those who are mistreated as if you yourselves were suffering.  (Hebrews 13:3)
