One in seven Christians worldwide lives in a country where persecution is high or commonplace. Walking alongside and supporting these individuals is like a two-edged sword – the journey involves blessings and hardship.

“You see so much despair, so much pain. But, on the other hand, you see how God is working through the ministries helping the Persecuted Church,” Greg Musselman of Voice of the Martyrs Canada explains.

VOM Canada partners with Christian Faith Ministries in northern Nigeria. What began as a small Bible college 15 years ago has doubled in size and scope to meet the growing needs of persecuted Christians.

“In the north, thousands of Christians are killed every year; you’ve got people that have been injured. A hospital’s been started on the compound because of all the medical needs,” Musselman says.
