Growing In God

Brothers And Sisters In Chains

Voice of the Martyrs is a non-profit, interdenominational organization with a vision for aiding Christians around the world who are being persecuted for their faith in Christ.  We encourage you to join with us in prayer for these dear believers who are suffering for Christ.  They are great examples for us!  We will highlight different prisoners periodically. If you click the above Prisoner Alert logo you can write to the prisoners in their own language.  It is a really neat site that makes writing our brothers and sisters in chains very easy.  You choose what phrases you want to write, along with some Bible verses and then print it to send.  The site will explain more.

In May 2007, Le Thi Cong Nhan, a Vietnamese Christian and lawyer, was sentenced to four years in prison followed by three years of house arrest. Nhan was arrested and sentenced alongside Nguyen Van Dai, a Protestant church leader and lawyer. They are accused of a wide range of crimes; such as “conspiring with terrorists, in their efforts to promote human rights efforts, including religious rights and democracy.” They are also accused of compiling “evidence of Vietnam’s suppression of the Protestant religion and providing it to the U.S.-based Committee for Religious Freedom in Vietnam and the U.S. embassy.” Following Nhan and Dai’s sentencing, the Vietnamese state news agency accused the lawyers of “posting information on the internet … [and] painting biased and distorted pictures of the country and its internal affairs.
