The plight of persecuted believers comes to North America

By October 16, 2006

USA (MNN) — The Lord has been opening some remarkable doors for Kingdom influence. The World Evangelical Alliance has been invited to participate in peace talks between the Colombian Government and the National Liberation Army.

Through involvement with the UN Human Rights Council, the WEA has been able to meet privately with many diplomats to discuss the persecution of Christians, and also spoke at the ‘Rally to Stop Genocide’ in Washington DC.

WEA’s Geoff Tunnicliffe says they want to tell Christians in North America about it through what they’re calling, their ‘Global Briefing.’

“God is doing so many tremendous things around the world and there’s so many stories we could tell,” says Tunnicliffe, “so we decided to bring a team a people from around the world and travel across to several cities in North America to give a global briefing of what God is doing, not only through the persecuted church, but in many different parts of the world.”

The ‘Global Briefing’ will be in Chicago tomorrow and Toronto, Canada on October 20.

In a continuing effort to keep the plight of persecuted Christians in the minds of believers worldwide, WEA will be hold an International Day of Prayer for the Persecuted Church event this year on November 12.

MNN will once again be producing a special IDOP Radio Broadcast. Tunnicliffe says, “We’re just thrilled to partner with you and we’re just so deeply grateful for the work that you do at Mission Network News to get the message out that people just don’t hear about.”

The 55 minute broadcast will feature music from Michael Card, Shannon Wexleburg and others. We’ll also have speakers from the ‘Global Briefing’ Tour and prayers from people all around the world.
