Write a letter
The greatest gift you can give a persecuted Christian is the knowledge that they're not alone.
Over the years, thousands of Open Doors supporters have brought hope to persecuted Christians like Pastor Dayaratne (right) through letter-writing campaigns. He and his wife, Mala, cared for over 130 children at Agape Children's Village in Sri Lanka, until local Buddhist extremists falsely accused them of abuse, forcing the children to leave. But because of your support, Pastor Dayaratne and his wife can now face the future with courage and faith.
Around the world there are many more persecuted Christians facing darkness and despair who need your encouragement. Click the boxes below to see who you can write to, or order the latest Open Doors Letter-Writing Guide.

Thank you so much for your letters and prayers. For persecuted Christians going through dark and difficult times, your messages of support are a source of hope and encouragement. But rather than us saying 'thank you' on behalf of our persecuted family, here are some updates from those you've written to, and how God has been at work in their lives...
Update on Pastor Bahrom and his family
Due to an overwhelming response to Pastor Bahrom's situation in Tajikistan, we are having to close our campaign early. Thank you for all of your letters and messages of encouragement; Bahrom is very grateful to everyone who has supported him in their prayers. Please continue to pray for his wife, Gulnora, and his three children; Gulnora is struggling with depression. Please pray that the letters we send will encourage her and her family.
