Today, Vice President Mike Pence spoke at the Mayflower hotel to open today’s session at the World Congress of Persecuted Christians event sponsored by the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association (BGEA). Attendees hail from over 130 nations with high level representatives from the Roman Catholic, Orthodox, Coptic and Evangelical Christian communities. Vice President Pence delivered a heart-felt message to the gathering of Christian leaders. He said that President Trump is resolved to help persecuted Christians and religious minorities.
The World Congress of Persecuted Christians began on May 10 and continues through Saturday. Multiple breakout sessions address a wide variety of issues and the horrible persecution Christians are facing worldwide. “Christian martyrdom is on the rise. Christians are facing unspeakable persecution around the world. We are the keeper of our Christian brothers and sisters and we must pray and do everything we can to help them,” said Staver. “In America, Christians face discrimination that is on the rise. In other parts of the world, Christians are being slaughtered for one reason only – because they are followers of Jesus. While rampant persecution comes from Islamic Jihadists, Christians are tortured and face death from many sources. But history has proven the words of Jesus to be true that even the “fury of hell shall not prevail” against the Church of Jesus Christ,” said Staver.
