Persecution against Christians in Colombia (number 49 on the Open Doors World Watch List) is on the rise. Unknown groups are attacking pastors and church leaders with impunity, defended and supported by the government.
Even after peace agreements and the disarmament of the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC), certain regions have seen an increase in violent attacks, as FARC are not the only source of violence and crime in the country.
Could you write to pastors and church leaders in Colombia to encourage them to stand strong in their faith?
One pastor says, “God is doing something wonderful here and the prayers of our brothers and sisters will complete what God is already doing.” Please also bear in mind that many of them only speak Spanish, so write in simple English or, if you can, Spanish.
Here are some simple letter-writing guidelines to help you as you write.
Please put all your letters and cards in one envelope and send to Open Doors UK, PO Box 6, Witney, OX29 6WG.
We support people who are beaten, tortured,
imprisoned, falsely accused, and hated simply for following Jesus.
