A worker who has traveled to many countries for The Voice of the Martyrs answers the question, “How do VOM workers travel?”
“We definitely travel in unique ways overseas,” said the worker. “I have personally ridden a camel and two elephants in the field, although those were mostly just for fun! We start some of our trips in an airplane, and we have ridden in some very large airplanes and some very small ones. The smallest one I have flown in could seat only four people; the larger ones can seat over 200 people! Then we usually travel by a taxi. We also take boats, sometimes a large ferry, and sometimes a small canoe. I have ridden motorbikes on occasion, and, of course, sometimes we need to travel on a bus or train.
“No matter how we travel, our goal is to help our brothers and sisters who are suffering for Jesus, and we are able to help hundreds of them each year. God has blessed us with an amazing opportunity to serve Him!”
