SUNDAY  JUNE 20, 2010 VOM 
Dear Friends of VOM: The news of the Nigerian massacre in March 2010 was horrifying.More than 500 of our Christian brothers and sisters — 80 percent of them women and  children — in three villages were slaughtered in one night!  

 Days later, “Dr. Kim,” VOMedical director, walked among the rubble of burned- 

 out churches and viewed the sites of mass graves in northern Nigeria. Immediately, 

 Dr. Kim began caring for the wounded and comforting the survivors, reassuring the 

Nigerian Christians that Christians in the United States and around the world had NOT 

forgotten them in their time of suffering. 

Dr. Kim’s firsthand accounts of the massacre’s aftermath are sobering: 

“In more than three years of providing medical service for persecuted Christians 

for VOM, this is the first time that the word ‘carnage’ comes to mind. This is beyond 

anything I have seen in my 33 years of medicine, including doing autopsies and 

working in emergency rooms. We found out that in one village we visited there 

were only 20 or 30 survivors in the entire village.” 

CLICK HERE to read Dr. Kim’s full report and WATCH a VIDEO REPORT about these attacks and to learn how you can support VOMedical. 

But amid the suffering, Dr. Kim also found hope: 

“It was amazing when we were allowed to worship with the believers. Even with all 

the death and destruction around them, they were praising the Lord for his 

goodness and mercy. The service was held in the village square, complete with charred, 

 burned-out buildings in the background.” 

 VOM began VOMedical to help believers such as these. We wanted to be the hands 

 and feet of Jesus Christ, rushing to the aid of Christians injured as a result of 


 This month we invite you to make a gift to VOMEDICAL. CLICK HERE to support 

 this important work. 

 I am humbled as I think about our Nigerian brothers and sisters, worshipping in 

 the ruins of their villages, yet offering forgiveness to the people who killed their 

 family members. THANK YOU for standing with VOM as we stand with believers like 

these around the world. 

For those in bonds,
Tom White

      Im sure many of you are like me and one of the first things you do in the morning is head here and check out the new post. Along with seeing the new posts, I’m also always checking out the blog roll rss feed and watching them grow, or shrink sometimes. In one of my past …but all in all excellent site. Keep it up!
