The Lutheran Church Missouri Synod in convention urged congregations and individuals to pray for persecuted Christians around the world and to raise awareness of their plight in whatever way possible.  The LCMS is engaged around the world in helping to alleviate the suffering caused by persecution and the displacement of people because of persecution.

The Lutheran Witness, the official magazine of the LCMS has a huge article explaining the places in the world where Christians are actively being attacked and are in danger of genocide.

Finally a member of the United States Government has stood up and talked about the dangers and the issues facing Christians around the world.  Thank you vice-president Pence.
