“It’s so wonderful!” – Susanna Koh, wife of abducted pastor, receives your cards and letters

Thank you for sending your letters, cards and encouragement to Susanna Koh – a batch of them were delivered at the end of February, and Susanna was delighted.

Susanna is strengthened in her pursuit for answers thanks to your prayers and support

Ever since Pastor Raymond Koh was abducted by Malaysian secret state police in 2017, his wife, Susanna, has been fighting tirelessly to find him. The last four years have been painful and difficult, but Susanna testifies to the support she has received from Christians around the world, including you, who have buoyed her and her family up with their prayers. 

Watch an interview with Susanna here, where she expresses her thanks for your continued support.

On the fourth anniversary of Raymond’s disappearance (13 February 2021), we invited supporters to write to Susanna and her family. On 24 February, Open Doors partners visited Susanna to pass on your letters!

“It’s so wonderful!” she said, on receiving the cards. Since Raymond’s abduction, Susanna has kept every letter, every card, and every note she has received from people all over the world. She was especially thrilled with this new batch of letters, as many were also addressed to her children.

From the disappearance of a loving father and husband, Raymond Koh, to the inaction of the authorities on the case, to dealing with the press and the media – the Koh family has been through a lot. With every obstacle in their way and every challenge confronted, the family still has no answers. They still do not know where Raymond is.

Follow Raymond’s case from the beginning with this timeline.

Please continue to pray for the Koh family as they search for answers – and for the swift and safe release of Pastor Raymond.  

Please pray

Father God, thank You for Your faithfulness to Susanna and her family. Continue to surround them with Your comforting presence, and fill them with peace as they search for answers. Please sustain Pastor Raymond, wherever he is, and bring him safely home. Amen.

Write to Susanna

Susanna and her family have been touched by your prayers and support over the last four years. You can still write to them and let them know that they are not alone in this difficult time. 

Yes, I'll send a letter
