Letter-Writing Guide

You can encourage persecuted Christians to stand strong just by putting pen to paper! Your letters can greatly strengthen believers who are suffering for their faith and demonstrate that the Body of Christ is indeed one Body. Your letters also stand as a witness to those around the person you write to.

Please read our writing guidelines before you begin any letters!

To get started, visit the Online Letter-Writing Guide.

Send all letters and cards to:

c/o Open Doors
8-19 Brownridge Road
Halton Hills, ON
L7G 0C6

What some of the recipients have said: 

"I was deeply encouraged by the words of love from faces I have never seen in my life, from hearts loaded with concern for persecuted believers, from faces saddened by the story of my experience. … the wonderful texts beautifully written and packaged have taught me not to lose sight of Jesus. I was encouraged greatly, I learnt to trust God the more, I believe that God will never let me down."

Receiving Letters

"Thank you for letters from brothers and sisters around the world. Praise God that these letters brought us not only encouragement but they also are a living testimony to prison guards. The guards told me that Christians are so solid – they stand together – and the guards admire Christianity."

“May God help you as you helped me. I thank you for these letters. I thank you for you have encouraged me greatly through these letters.”

“At first I wanted to stop serving the Lord because this trial was too much to bear. I give up, I surrender. But when I received many letters and verses of comfort, my anger faded. I realized I was wrong. The letters encouraged me. It gave me courage.”
