More Christians are persecuted today than ever before. Which is why we need to join in the International Day of Prayer for the Persecuted Church.
The first two Sundays in November (11/5 and 11/12) have been designated as the International Day of Prayer for the Persecuted Church (IDOP 2017)
On a sunny day last May, several families climbed onto a couple of buses, happily looking forward to visiting a monastery together.
They never made it. Instead, half of them, including ten children, were slaughtered. You see, these families were Egyptian Christians.
