Things We're Praying
Every second Sunday we pray for our persecuted brothers and sisters around the world. Hebrews 13:3 says, "Remember those in prison as if you were their fellow prisoners, and those who are mistreated as if you yourselves were suffering."
(Mizo Translations) Chawlhkawr hnihnaah chuan Krista vanga hreawm tuarte tan kan tawngtai dawn a nia. Hebrai 13:3, "Phuara awmte chu phuar ni ve ngin hre reng ula; hrehawm tuarte chu taksaa awm ve bawk in nih avangin hre reng rawh u." Krista tlanna zarah kan zain pumkhat kan ni si a, tawngtaiin i inpui tawn theuh ang u.
LIBERTY STUDENT EXPLORES OPEN DOORS FOR HONORS PROJECT ON MINISTRY WRITING
Recently, I had a chance to speak with another one of our college aged supporters-Valerie Pors-via a video call.
Valerie attends Liberty University where ODUSA staffer, Pete Holmes, recently presented during a chapel service. During this powerful gathering, Liberty students stood in solidarity with persecuted Christians, raising their arms in prayer while wearing barbed wire bracelets that read, "One With Them." (You can watch this service here or read about it here.)
Afterward, Valerie reached out to me because, as a senior in the journalism program, she wanted to explore how journalists could use their skills to participate in ministry work. She also graciously agreed to tell us about her experience in the reflection below.
I loved every minute of the call with Valerie. And couldn't help thinking about Daphne Stoltzfus, a graphic design student from Pennsylvania, who had also recently shared a college project inspired by Open Doors. The Open Doors staff loves to hear how others participate in the work of the persecuted church. And it's especially great to see God laying this ministry on the hearts of people about to begin their careers.
If you or someone you know are supporting the persecuted church in your own unique way, I'd love to hear from you too.
In the meantime, enjoy this reflection from Valerie Pors.
