Mariam, age 18, a Christian in Egypt, sent the following message to children in the United States.
“Christians in Egypt are not treated equally with Muslims. Also, girls are considered less than boys in everything. I want to tell American kids to thank God that you are not bound by all the things we’re bound with in our country. You’re free to be whatever you want to be.”

Wesley P., a 15-year-old VOM volunteer reporter, reports on preparations at The Voice of the Martyrs for the International Day of Prayer for the Persecuted Church (November 2nd) and shares his thoughts about the importance of prayer. He ends with a challenge for other kids.
Pastor Richard Wurmbrand was a pastor in Romania in the mid-20th century. He was imprisoned for 14 years for his Christian activities, and his wife, Sabina, was also arrested and imprisoned. After they were released, they came to the United States and started the ministry that later became The Voice of the Martyrs.
The Wurmbrands suffered for their faith but always trusted in God. When Pastor Wurmbrand got out of prison, he wrote down many of the thoughts that had come to him while he was in prison.
