Send hope: Write a letter
We all need encouragement now and then. And followers of Jesus who are suffering for their faith need encouragement more than most. They need our prayers and words of hope to help get them through, and for the past few decades Open Doors has been helping people in the UK send letters, thoughts and prayers to christians who face persecution all round the world.
This might all sound a bit old school. These days we’re surrounded by instant communication. Texts, instant messaging, emails – we’re bombarded with messages we read then delete.
But the point is, a letter is more personal. It’s hand-written. When we write, those who receive our letters aren’t just getting some anonymous text or printed email – they are seeing our handwriting, our drawings and our effort. They know we care. We’re connected. It’s as much about what you write as writing the letter itself.
It’s pretty amazing, and we’d love you to spend a few minutes reading the stories of the people below and writing letters that will bring hope and transformation.
