Donate Now to support persecuted Christians

Not all wounds are physical. Traumatic events can cause deep emotional wounds as well.

Nearly three months after his church was attacked, Samuel still wears a bandage across his face, waiting for the remaining wounds to heal.

More than 300 church goers were gathered that morning. A suicide bomber tried to get into the church compound, but had driven into the closed gates when the bomb went off.

Two people were killed; Samuel’s uncle, who was a Sunday school teacher, and a baby girl. Samuel was badly injured during the explosion. Samuel underwent four hours of surgery and continues to wait for his wounds to heal.

But not all wounds are physical. These traumatic events often leave Christians with deep emotional wounds as well.

After traumatic events like this, Open Doors offers trauma counseling to persecuted Christians. This is done by a team of trainers who each have taken a certified trauma counseling course. The course combines biblical teaching and counseling techniques to address the enormous trauma linked to the violent loss of loved ones.

When you give Where Needed Most, you can provide persecuted Christians with the practical help that they need—whatever the situation may be. Your gift could be used for important programs like trauma counseling or for an emergency need!

Thank you for your faithfulness in providing for Christians, no matter what their need might be!

Comrades 2020

Becoming Comrades

The trio of Comrades – husband and wife Joe and Laura McElroy alongside drummer John Gaskil – is used to living in a van and touring the country. Now, their new normal has provided them with a moment to "be adults" for once. We recently sat down with the McElroys to talk more about the spiritual reality within life, how soon they'll be able to release new music, and how koalas are their new normal.

HM Magazine Turns 35

In 1985, Doug Van Pelt photocopied a letter-sized sheets of paper, bound them together, and handed them out in person on the campus of the University of Texas at Austin. It's all digital now, but, along the way, Van Pelt stirred up quite a few waves, played some seriously heavy music, and made a few friends along the way. Here: A quick look back at the magazine's 35-year history with Van Pelt and new owner, David Stagg.
