Open Doors USA, a Christian organization that monitors Christian persecution worldwide, is offering believers an opportunity to write notes of encouragement to fellow believers.
The letter-writing campaign is part of Open Doors' mission to extend extra love and compassion to persecuted Christians around the Valentine’s Day holiday.
“Today, we’d like to invite you to participate in a similar Valentine's Day opportunity. Would you pause for just a few minutes to write a brief message of love and encouragement for Open Doors to deliver to persecuted Christians living in other dangerous regions in our world?” Open Doors asks in their recent newsletter.
“Today, as we remember persecuted Christians, would you join us in following the example of the apostle Paul who often wrote letters to churches facing crisis or need? You words today, just like Paul’s in the New Testament, could be an important encouragement to believers living out their faith in the world’s most difficult places,” the newsletter continues.
If you are interested in taking a few minutes out of your day to send a note of encouragement to a persecuted Christian, you can learn more here. Both physical and digital letters are accepted. Be sure to read Open Doors’ letter-writing guidelines before submitting your letter.
