Write to Pastor Raymond Koh’s family

It’s been four years since Pastor Raymond Koh from Malaysia was abducted, leaving a grieving family still searching for answers. 

The pastor was driving to visit a friend during the day on 13 February 2017 when he was abducted. Just under two years later, in April 2019, the Human Rights Commission of Malaysia (SUHAKAM) concluded that Raymond Koh was a victim of enforced disappearance by the State, namely the Special Branch of the Malaysian Police Department.

And yet, the family still doesn’t have firm answers about what happened to Raymond or where he is now. They also don’t know why he was taken, although he had been accused of sharing the gospel with Malay Muslims, which is illegal in Malaysia, and this may partly account for his capture.

Raymond’s wife, Susanna Koh, is filing a lawsuit against the police and Malaysian government over Raymond’s abduction in her continued search for answers. It has been a long and difficult journey for her and the couple’s adult children, Elizabeth, Esther and Jonathan.

Your support has enabled Open Doors to help the Koh family in their advocacy efforts, calling for truth and justice. Your prayers and letters will help to show the Koh family that they are not forgotten by their brothers and sisters around the world, and nor is Pastor Raymond.

Writing Guidelines

  • Please write to Pastor Raymond’s adult children, who are called Elizabeth, Esther and Jonathan, as well as to Pastor Raymond’s wife Susanna. The whole family need encouragement
  • Write in English
  • Greeting cards, artwork and postcards work best
  • Be encouraging and include one or two Bible verses (for security reasons, please do not use verses that refer to Israel, armies or war)
  • Please show sensitivity – do not dwell on the recipient’s plight, or share about the blessings of life in your country.

For Security

  • Do not mention Open Doors in your messages
  • If you send a postcard, please put the postcard in an envelope – do not write the Open Doors address on the postcard
  • You may provide your name and the country you are from, but do not provide your full address
  • Do not criticise the country’s religion or religious extremists, its government, judicial system, or political leaders
  • Do not offer to send money or other forms of help.
