If you’re looking for an opportunity to encourage other believers, some widows are waiting to hear from you.

It’s called the Orange Letter Campaign, a week-long effort by the Church to send encouraging messages to fellow Christian believers who are suffering for their faith.

The ‘orange’ refers to jumpsuits worn by 21 Egyptian Coptic Christians who were martyred by ISIS terrorists in Libya.

Previous Orange Letter Campaigns focused on Christians in North Korea and Syria.

The effort is led by Uncharted Ministries and Engage Magazine, a ministry of the American Family Association geared toward young Americans.

This year’s Orange Letter Campaign focuses on Nigerian widows, says Wesley Wildmon, an AFA spokesman and a writer for the magazine.
