Be inspired by the stories of our persecuted brothers and sisters! At the VOM ADVANCE conference, speakers from around the world share personal testimonies about God’s faithfulness in the midst of persecution. Join us to learn how God’s kingdom is advancing, even in the face of fierce opposition. Meet your persecuted family face to face, and let God use their stories to challenge you to a deeper, bolder walk with Him.
The conference rekindled my desire to pray for others, to stand in the gap and, again, intercede for those who are persecuted for His name.
You make the persecuted real to us by sharing their pictures and their stories, and I feel like we know them through our prayers.

Sarah LiuSarah Liu lived a life of faith in her homeland of China. Her unapologetic Christian beliefs ultimately led to her arrest, torture and imprisonment for six years. more about Sarah Liu
“Sarah” Liu lived out her Christian faith in her homeland of China. Her faithfulness ultimately led to her arrest, torture and six-year imprisonment. Reflecting on what she went through during that time, she said, “I thought of Christ being beaten on the way to the cross. He suffered for me and in a small way I shared in that suffering for Him. It gave me courage to survive my time in prison.” Her story is told in the video “Sarah’s Trail of Blood.”
