Brought to tears

As I am enjoying a summer break and a blog break I've taken to reading a bit more, now that I have the time. And this week JJ and CJ are enjoying another VBS at a local church. They are having a blast and I am taking advantage of the time by sitting in the pews reading my copy of Tortured for Christ by Richard Wurmbrand the founder of VOM. Only one other book has brought me to tears and that was Safely Home by Randy Alcorn. Although the later is fiction, it brought to life the reality the love of Christ our brothers and sisters who are being persecuted have.

Tortured for Christ is also opening my heart in a way never imagined as I see my neglect of our fellow Christian brothers and sisters who, for the sake of the advancement of the gospel, are being tortured beyond our comprehension as we sit back so comfortably and neglect our support of them through the most powerful weapon, prayer!!!! I've still much to go in this book but wanted to let you know that you can get a free copy when you visit Tortured for Christ or go to VOM's Persecution to learn about the persecution that is taking place and how you can help!!!!! You can even visit Prisoner Alert to learn about Christian brothers and sisters who are now imprisoned because of their beliefs and find out how you can write them a letter!!!

But wait................................ there is more!!!! Want a project that will impact eternity?

How about making parachutes for bibles to be dropped over Columbia? They even have packs you can order that do not require sewing!!!!!

Making an eternal difference, I can think of no better way to spend a summer!!!
