Advocates International wishes you a happy In"dependence" Day   
Dear Friends,

Tomorrow marks the 236th year since the United States of America declared its independence from England in 1776.  For those in the USA who are celebrating our nation's birthday, we must not forget those who live in countries that do not allow religious freedom or freedom of speech, that cornerstones of our independence.  As we've noted before, almost 3 in 4 people around the glove live in countries that have high or very high restrictions on religious freedom.  Pray with us for those who live under the threat of persecution but especially for our advocates who are daily waging the legal battles to help level the playing field for religious freedom. 


AI Prayer LogoMost importantly, let us be mindful that while we may live in a country that has great freedoms, as children of the Living God, we should live each day of our lives in dependence upon Him.  After all, "apart from Him, we can do nothing," but "we can do all things through Christ who gives us strength."  


Thank you so much for your continued prayers and financial support for the work of Advocates.      


May the Lord bless you with His perfect . . . 


Grace and peace,

Thank You for Your Financial Support

        AI is not a recipient of government funding and is solely dependent upon the financial contributions of those who believe in its mission, thereby enabling it to serve "clients" ranging from heads of state seeking to implement constitutional reforms to persecuted and imprisoned believers sentenced to death for their faith. We are most grateful and thank you for whatever financial support or voluntary service you can provide in support of AI's mission. Here's how you can help: (more)
