Friday the 19th - 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
Chairman
International Christian Voice

Sara Sumbal needs your help

Sara’s Story

My name is Sara Sumbal. My family and I are asylum seekers in Bangkok, Thailand. We fled our home in Karachi, Pakistan, in 2013 when we became victims of persecution after my father, a Christian evangelist, was labeled a blasphemer under the Blasphemy Law for evangelising a Muslim man. My father was initially threatened by two Muslim clerics to stop evangelising or they would kill him and his family. They then ordered him to convert to Islam and all would be well. When he refused, they and the male members of the Muslim man’s family beat him unconscious and left him for dead on a garbage heap.

After my father’s recovery, the extremists threatened him again with death because he continued holding prayer meetings. Because we were traumatised and terrified, our family fled form Karachi to a friend’s home in the city of Bahawalpur.
