The following bios of the husband and wife who started Voice of The Martyrs. Powerful.

Quote:
The Voice of the Martyrs is a non-profit, inter-denominational Christian organization dedicated to assisting the persecuted church worldwide. VOM was founded in 1967 by Pastor Richard Wurmbrand, who was imprisoned 14 years in Communist Romania for his faith in Christ. His wife, Sabina, was imprisoned for three years. In the 1960s, Richard, Sabina, and their son, Mihai, were ransomed out of Romania and came to the United States. Through their travels, the Wurmbrands spread the message of the atrocities that Christians face in restricted nations, while establishing a network of offices dedicated to assisting the persecuted church.

I used to have my high school discipleship classes read Fox's Book of Martyrs. Lately, I've been having them read about John Bunyan in Fox's while reading Pilgrim's Progress.

hljc, it's good to find someone else who appreciates these time honored classics.
