His testimony, quoted in the book "Tortured for Christ", made a stir as these were the years of youth controversy, the Vietnam War movement, and the strong growth of Communist parties all over the world. initiative by some Christian Christian associations, paid a heavy redemption money to the Romanian authorities, Richard Wurmbrand came to the West where he immediately began to tell his story and to witness the violence and atrocities committed by Communist regimes on Christians. His testimony, mentioned in the book "Tortured for Christ", made a stir, since those were the years of youth controversy, the anti-war movement in Vietnam and the strong growth of communist parties all over the world. In his book, the first of the many who would then publish, Richard Wurmbrand raised a vibrant appeal to all Christians who could exercise their faith in freedom in the Western world: When they struck me under the feet of my feet, my tongue yelled. Why was my tongue screaming? They were not hitting me on the tongue. She was crying because the tongue and the feet are both parts of the same body. And you free Christians are part of the same Body of Christ now being tortured in prisons in the free nations ... You hear our cry: "Remember us, do not abandon us!"? During its development and following the character of Wurmbrand Shepherd who was a man of action, the Mission for the Persecuted Church wanted to act immediately to help Christians persecuted throughout the world concretely. These are its main activities: ● Distribution of humanitarian aid for families and orphans of persecution ● Economic support and training at work for families and widows of persecuted Christians ● Safe homes for new converts who risk persecution ● Humanitarian aid in case of natural disasters or mass persecution. Free medical treatment and operations for victims of persecution. ● Distribution of Bibles and Christian Literature for Persecuted Believers.
