Todd Nettleton, Chief of Media Relations and Message Integration for The Voice of the Martyrs, visits with The REALLY, Real, Deal, on Christian Persecution and VOM’s mission of helping persecuted Christians through practical and spiritual assistance and leading other members of the Body of Christ into fellowship with them. VOM is a nonprofit, interdenominational missions organization, that offers practical and spiritual help to persecuted Christians around the world. VOM was founded in 1967 by Pastor Richard Wurmbrand, who was imprisoned 14 years in Communist Romania for his faith in Christ. His wife, Sabina, was imprisoned for three years. In the 1960s, Richard, Sabina, and their son, Mihai, were ransomed out of Romania and came to the United States. Through their travels, the Wurmbrands spread the message of the atrocities that Christians face in restricted nations, while establishing a network of offices dedicated to assisting the persecuted church. The Voice of the Martyrs continues in this mission around the world today.
VOM’s ministry is based on Hebrews 13:3: Remember them that are in bonds, as bound with them; and them which suffer adversity, as being yourselves also in the body. For more information, or to support VOM, visit www.persecution.com
