Friday the 27th - INTERNATIONAL CHRISTIAN VOICE - Free Joomla 3.2 Templates

On behalf of International Christian Voice (ICV) and my family, I would like to thank all our members, well-wishers, supporters, partners and donors for their excellent support in the year 2017. Due to your support, ICV was able to highlight the plight of Christians and other religious minorities who are suffering in this world due to their religious beliefs.

Because of your continued support, ICV has also been able to make a difference in the lives of those who have been suffering daily, especially the Faris family, who has recently come to Canada from miserable conditions in Thailand to start a new life of hope and peace.
We are very thankful to our Lord Jesus Christ who is using us to make a difference in the lives of the deserving and to all of you, without whom none of this would be possible.
Today while we are saying goodbye to 2017, I would like to wish you a prosperous New Year 2018.
May God's blessings be upon you and your families for the coming year. We hope to see your continued support in the new year so that we may continue to make a difference in the lives of marginalized and downtrodden brothers and sisters.
Happy New Year!
Best regards,
Peter Bhatti

Progress Report on the Faris Family

In November 2015, International Christian Voice visited Pakistani Christian refugees in Thailand to survey the severity of their living conditions. During our visit, we met the Faris family and heard their story. Mr. Ayub Faris and his family fled from Pakistan to save their lives after an attempted kidnapping of his 16 year old daughter, Aanya, was made by a local Islamic fundamentalist. Fortunately, she was able to escape, but the perpetrator remained adamant on kidnapping her and forcing the family to convert. In this dire situation, the quickest and easiest option for the family was to flee to Thailand.
