“I always thought no one was thinking about us,” shares Taher from the Middle East (name changed), who has been imprisoned for his faith and, along with his family, forced to flee his home country. “But by sending us these cards, it is proven to me that there are lots and lots of people thinking about us and praying for us. I thank them.”
Taher’s words reflect what your letters, cards, drawings, pictures and messages mean to persecuted Christians.
In our letter-writing guide, you can find out how to write to Christians from places including Nigeria, North Africa and Colombia. They’d love to hear from you! A list of our current campaigns can also be found below.
Your persecuted family certainly love hearing from you through them. “These letters encouraged me to know that I am not alone," says Martina from Nigeria, whose husband was tragically killed by Fulani militants. "Anytime I am sad, or my heart is heavy, I pick up the letters and start reading and feel comforted.”
Another grateful recipient of your letters is Saghar from Iran. We caught up with her last year to hand over the hundreds of letters sent to her. She was overwhelmed by them – as you can see in the below video.
For inspiration and guidance as you write, here are some simple letter writing guidelines.
