Dear Friends of the Persecuted Church,
I wanted to give you a special invitation to my church’s observance of this wonderful day to pray for the persecuted church. This year we have a special blessing in store for us. We actually have 3 speakers this year! Tom Doyle, a very gifted author of many books about the persecuted church and President of Uncharted Ministries, will have many exciting stories to share with us about his work with the persecuted church and what God is doing in the Middle East, and his wife JoAnn Doyle will share about her amazing ministry to the women of the Middle East. These two world-class speakers are already over the top and will inspire you so much! But that’s not all – God has also blessed us with a surprise special guest – a pastor from a sensitive area in Asia – to share his own personal experience of persecution. Wow!
In the past few years we have blessed to partner with Grace Fellowship Church in Costa Mesa. Well, believe it or not, this year we are partnering with a wonderful organization called Trellis that seeks to unify all the churches in Costa Mesa in prayer and outreach. They are coming alongside me and will invite ALL the churches of Costa Mesa to our IDOP event – what a blessing!!! I hope you can come and hear these exciting speakers give us the full scoop on what God is doing in the Islamic Word! This is an event you do NOT want to miss!
Many Blessings in Christ Jesus,
