DC, Maryland and Virginia locals. Do you want to learn more about persecution? There’s a fantastic opportunity this coming weekend. Voice of the Martyrs is holding a free conference Saturday April 7, in Vienna, Virginia.
Speakers will include Gracia Burnham, Brother Bennie of India, Petr Jasek who spent 445 days in a Sudanese prison, and Gilbert Hovsepian. The event is free, although they prefer you RSVP through the VOM site.
