PrisonAlert: What can I do?

I recently signed up to send letters to Christians who've been imprisoned because of their faith. I will be able to write them a letter of encouragement in their own language using a special website and then mail the letter myself. Below is the email I received after signing up for you to read and see what it entails. I encourage you to prayerfully consider doing the same thing as we "Remember those in bonds as bound with them." (Hebrews 13:3)

Registration Confirmation

Thank you for signing up for The Voice of the Martyrs' Prisoner Alert program. With this special interactive program, you will have the opportunity to help imprisoned Christians in nations like China, Vietnam, Turkey, and other countries, through...

1.) Prayer;
2.) Protesting to appropriate government officials;
3.) Writing an encouraging letter (You will even be able to translate your letter into the prisoner's native language); and
4.) Involving your Christian friends and watching the worldwide impact of the program.

Hebrews 13:3 encourages us to "remember those in bonds as bound with them." Through the Prisoner Alert program, you will be able to fulfill this vital scripture and tell the world that we will not let our Christian brothers and sisters suffer in silence.

A new prisoner profile or update goes out each month. In the meantime we invite you to visit www.prisoneralert.com and view the current prisoner profile and opportunities for involvement.

We also invite you to visit The Voice of the Martyrs website at www.persecution.com to learn more about today's persecuted church.
