Pummeled with constant news about crises, it becomes tempting to simply ignore the persecution of our brothers and sisters around the world.

“As much as you know it, you’re doing what’s right. You’re trying to be a representative of Christ in this perishing world. But it looks so hopeless! Everything seems to be going the other way, and you wonder, ‘Will I ever make a difference?’”
