Connecting the persecuted Church with the Church in freer societies is truly a beautiful ministry. We were reminded of that recently when Naomi* from Nigeria visited Asia. The trip was full of challenges, but also blessings.
At the end of September Naomi, a widow from Nigeria did a speaking tour of Asia. The trip was full of challenges. Not only did Naomi as a first-time international traveler had to cope with terrible jetlag, she had her fair share of other travel frustrations. The Philippines immigration only let her through after intense prayer by all involved and lots of fancy footwork by the Philippines team there.
Following her visit, Naomi had an encouraging testimony about Open Doors living out of one of our core values (We are people of prayer) :

“This trip was an encouragement to me because I [learned that] Christian brothers and sisters in Asia love Nigeria and the persecuted church. They were attentive to hear what we are passing through and how they can intervene… Words cannot explain how I feel after this trip. God bless and continue to uplift Open Doors, the staff and everyone working tirelessly to support the persecuted body of Christ.”
