For a number of years I have been an activist on behalf of persecuted Christians, particularly in Islamic nations where about 3/4 of the most serious persecution occurs. I founded the "Stop Persecution of Christians" yahoo group and the "Equal Rights for Christians in Islamic Nations" Facebook page. As a result I have been contacted by Christians from Pakistan who have fled to Thailand and Spain and while I am able to advocate on their behalf with Congress and the United Nations, etc., I am on a low fixed income and cannot help them enough. Two groups in Bangkok include a husband and wife evangelist team who was contacted by a divorced Muslim woman with children who wanted to know about Christianity. They baptized her and as a result all have had to flee Pakistan as all of the adults have been threatened with death. A second group contains a journalist who exposed the persecution of Christians in Pakistan and miraculously survived an assassination attempt. They fled to Bangkok because there is an office of the United Nations High Commission on Refugees there, but because of the severe refugee problem all over the world they must wait up to 18 months even to get an interview and in the meantime cannot work in Bangkok, which is very expensive. If I could get them to the US they would be able to apply for asylum and live here for a year until the hearings but could not work for 150 days. The need for funds is obvious and if necessary to assure those who give I can put you directly in touch with those Christians upon determining that they are not tied to Islamist groups that might threaten their security.
