The 2012 Religious Liberty Partnership Consultation begins today in Colombo, Sri Lanka and continues through March 29.  Advocates International's President & CEO, Brent McBurney will be participating in this critical annual meeting of like-minded ministries whose primary focus is on religious liberty around the globe, particularly for the persecuted church.


The RLP includes members in 18 countries and in the past several years has collaboratively addressed religious liberty issues and challenges in Pakistan, Nigeria, Sri Lanka, China, India, Afghanistan, and Vietnam.  See these examples.  


In addition to Advocates, RLP members include, among others: ADF, Christian Solidarity Worldwide, Friends of the Martyred Church, International Christian Concern, Jubilee Campaign, Middle East Concern, Open Doors International, Release International,
