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.

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.
