Open Doors Canada

Life in Canada and around the world has changed rapidly with the outbreak of COVID-19. We’ve had to change routines, cancel appointments and work from home. We are no longer able to gather with our church family. Life is different and, for many us, more difficult. It’s during this time, I believe we can learn so much form our persecuted family.  
Isolation is something many persecuted Christians deal with on an ongoing basis. Some are isolated because they’ve been arrested for their faith, others have been cast out of their family because of their decision to follow Jesus. Yet, these believers have learned to thrive in isolation. 
If there is one thing the persecuted church has taught us, it’s this: during times of hardship or darkness, God’s light in us often can shine the brightest.  
These believers already face difficulties and danger from militias, extremists or hostile governments. They are often seen as second-class citizens, traitors or infidels.  They live in countries with significant outbreaks. History tells us they will have less or no rights to advocate for themselves with police or public officials, less access to basic provisions like medical supplies, and that they will experience more discrimination in receiving emergency aid or human services.  
No matter how difficult or complex this scenario becomes, Open Doors is committed to continue serving persecuted Christians during the coronavirus pandemic while taking appropriate caution to not spread COVID-19.  

This Giving Tuesday, your gift of $50 will help a family of persecuted Christians survive by providing them with medical treatment, emergency supplies, and food!
