Will you host a ‘Sabina Supper’?
Pastor Richard Wurmbrand and his wife Sabina were the inspiration for Release’s ministry to serve persecuted Christians around the world. Richard’s story is well-known through his autobiography Tortured for Christ. The story of his wife, Sabina, may be less well known, but she too suffered greatly for her faith and she continues to be an inspiration to us in Release Women.
One of Release’s ongoing pledges is that we ‘do not abandon them’ and we ask that you will not abandon your persecuted brothers and sisters either. One way of putting this pledge into action is to hold a supper with your women’s group from church or with your friends or family and share Sabina’s story. Let it inspire you in your own journey of faith, and to want to find out more about today’s ‘Sabinas’ who continue to live under the daily threat of persecution.
Sabina Suppers is a very simple initiative to encourage people to organise a supper, or meal of some sort, and to introduce the work of Release through by using Sabina’s story. Funds can be raised by selling tickets to the meal or by donation. It’s an ideal way to raise funds for some of those Christian women today in places like Pakistan and Egypt.
