WHAT WE ACHIEVED IN 2023

Our Impact Report for 2023 demonstrates how we have been able to strengthen and support the persecuted church. Not only through the Word of God, but also by
support and prayer for persecuted believers in many other practical ways. These victories are yours to share as you partner with us faithfully and participate in the challenges through constant prayer and awareness of their daily challenges.

Thank you for your faithfulness and obedience. We continue in 2024 with the same focus: to be an ongoing voice for the persecuted and to support them spiritually and practically. Our goal is to be more prayerful and sensitive to where God is leading us to be of assistance to persecuted Christians as the need ever increases, and do the best with the resources we are blessed with.

Thank you once again for your fellowship and support for our ministry as we endeavour to bring awareness, and provide assistance to those who suffer for the
gospel.

And let us not grow weary while doing good, for in due season we shall reap if we do not lose heart.” Galatians 6:9

Our Core Ministry Funds

Families of Martyrs
We provide help for those who have suffered persecution themselves and for the families of martyrs or prisoners. Such help assists in the immediate aftermath of a persecution event and in meeting ongoing or long-term needs. Assistance includes living expenses, prison visitation trips, education and orphanages for children, microbusinesses, training programmes and safe houses for Christians whose lives are in danger.

Bibles and Literature
This fund helps VOM print and distribute Bibles to believers who reside in restricted nations, where Bibles are difficult to obtain. This includes producing New Testaments and complete Bibles in both print and digital formats as well as Bible commentaries, and inspirational Christian training material.

VOMedical
We provide medical assistance for Christians who have been injured or are suffering ill health from persecution, including forced poverty and discrimination. This is accomplished by providing medical examinations, along with testing and treatment including surgery, prescriptions, healthcare supplies, prosthetics, specialised counselling and rehabilitation.

Front Line Ministry
This fund directly assists pastors, evangelists and full-time Christian workers who courageously minister in the face of hostility and persecution. It provides evangelism and church resources, computers, transportation, small business equipment, and support for underground Bible colleges, leadership training and pastor support programmes.

VOM Ministry Fund
This fund supports the Australian ministry activities and initiatives to raise awareness about the persecuted church. It is also used to fund project shortfalls and emergency projects for persecuted Christians.

You can choose to direct your gift to Families of Martyrs, Bibles and Literature, Front Line Ministry or VOMedical and 100% of your donation will contribute to supporting projects in the field. Alternatively, you can choose to support the VOM Ministry Fund to be used where most needed.
