HE IS RISEN: REJOICE IN THE RESURRECTION OF JESUS CHRIST

On behalf of International Christian Voice (ICV), I would like to wish you all a very happy and blessed Resurrection Day. Every year we celebrate the resurrection of our Lord, who came into this world to redeem the suffering humanity and to unburden those who are bent under the heavy burden of oppression. 

International Christian Voice is a voice for those who face discrimination, hatred, oppression, and persecution because of their religious beliefs and is committed to continuing to work to promote justice, peace, and equality for all those who suffer from violence, tyranny, and incarceration.

At this special occasion, I would like to take the opportunity to thank all of you who continue to stand with us to eliminate forces of darkness, violence, and intolerance in our global society. Let us continue work together to promote human rights and religious freedom for all.   

Once again, I wish a blessed and joyful Easter to you and to your lovely families.  

May God’s abundant love bless you in a special way this Easter 2018.

TRIP TO THAILAND, MALAYSIA AND PAKISTAN

APRIL 30- MAY 15, 2018

International Christian Voice is committed to highlighting the plight of persecuted, marginalized,

and vulnerable religious minorities in Pakistan.

In pursuance of our goal to successfully bring to Canada our most recently sponsored refugee family - for whom our community and friends have so generously donated to meet their financial obligations - it became necessary to visit Pakistan and Thailand to assess firsthand the difficulties from which this family and others are suffering. Further, it is important for ICV to educate and bring awareness to asylum seekers on how to properly apply for Canadian immigration under Canada's Private Sponsorship Program and other programs.During the sponsorship process, ICV encountered a serious roadblock when the office of the UNHCR did not accept the application for our sponsored family, claiming that since the husband died in Thailand, his wife and children were no longer in danger in Pakistan and hence should go back to Pakistan.
