Can you imagine having your husband abducted and not knowing where he was or how he was doing? Now consider that day being lived out in your memory day after day for four years and still no news? Todd Nettleton updates us on this true story and shares how we can take action on behalf of Raymond and Susanna Koh, and we hear how one courageous Christian man is facing prison again in Iran and how we can be praying and advocating for him. Listen to this bi-monthly update from Voice of the Martyr’s Todd Nettleton with Ken and Deb.
Ash Wednesday is upon us and as the first day of Lent kicks off, we dig deeper into this practice with Theologian and Author Bryan Litfin. Bryan gives us a historical perspective on Ash Wednesday and the 40 days leading up to Resurrection Sunday. He offers some insight and encouragement to observe this tradition and use this time to deepen our relationship with Jesus Christ.
