A letter from Henrietta – thank you for helping faith to flourish

"Know therefore that the Lord your God is God; he is the faithful God, keeping his covenant of love to a thousand generations of those who love him and keep his commandments." (Deuteronomy 7:9)

When I wrote this letter last year, I was able to reflect on the extraordinary generosity that Open Doors supporters showed during the Covid-19 crisis in 2020. The pandemic didn’t end then, of course, but continued throughout 2021. We saw new waves of the virus and restricted freedoms across the world, and exacerbated persecution and discrimination against our global church family. And so it’s amazing that levels of giving and prayer remained incredibly high throughout the year. Thank you!

In 2021 your donations were, again, significantly higher than before Covid-19, enabling Open Doors partners and fieldworkers to continue providing vital support to those who are persecuted for following Jesus. Emergency Covid aid continued, but so did Bible distribution, relief aid, trauma care, training and microloans for the long-term survival of the church. 

Thank you, also, for speaking out for your persecuted family. Nearly 7,000 of you invited your MP to the parliamentary launch of the Open Doors World Watch List 2021. Because it was online, thousands of you were able to watch as nearly 100 MPs heard first-hand from persecuted believers. 

I continue to be humbled by the steadfast commitment of Open Doors supporters, without whom none of our work to support the persecuted church would be possible. As you read this annual review, please remember that every gift, every prayer, every action is enabling persecuted Christians in the most difficult of circumstances not just to stand strong, but to keep sharing Jesus, no matter the cost. Thank you so much.
