Global Christian Suffering

Global Christian Suffering: How you can help!  Around the world, growing numbers of Christians are losing their lives and property daily, simply for following Jesus.  Calvary has sent a gift through Send International (www.send.org) to serve Ukrainian refugees.  You can help to by donating to the "refuges in crisis fund "online at www.efca.org.

Two other ministries that effectively focus on this issue are Open Doors (www.opendoorsusa.org) and Voice of the Martyrs (www.persecution.com).  Please give and pray for relief and perseverance to these dear brothers and sisters (1 John 3:17-18).
