Bill To Place Emphasis On Ending Persecution

Christians, we have an opportunity to support our persecuted brothers and sisters across the globe. Mission Network News reported the following from Open Doors USA:
We see that about 70% of people in the world do not have the freedom to practice their faith....
So how can you help? Bill HR 1856, a bill which would amend the International Religious Freedom Act and place a greater emphasis on ending religious persecution in U.S. foreign policy is in need of your support! 
Vessey states, "I've talked to many members of Congress and their staff who say, ‘Well, we'll consider doing something like this if we hear from our constituents.' So it's really important that they hear from you and that they know that you want them to co-sponsor this bill."
There is a pre-written letter on the Open Doors USA Web site. You can go to and fill in your name and address for the letter to send it to your U.S. Representative. This bill needs to be passed soon before the US Commission of IRF loses their funding in September.
