The Least I Can Do

  Imran Ghafur, of Pakistan, has been in prison since 2009.  In January of 2010, he was sentenced to life  for burning pages of the Quran.  He was cleaning his brother's retail shop at the time.
  At times, Imran, and others like him, are surely discouraged, thinking the world has forgotten them.  But then, a letter arrives from a Christian brother or sister from a faraway land.  Imagine that!
  Today, I "wrote" that letter.  No, I don't speak Pakistani, and I don't know if he speaks English, but VOM (Voice of the Martyrs) makes it possible through a tool on their website.  The way it works is this:  You choose up to 12 Bible verses, in English, and they are made into a letter that you can print out and mail. Receiving mail may increase beatings, but according to prisoners who are released, it is worth it.
  VOM will send free monthly newsletters to anyone who requests them.  This way, one can keep up to date with what is going on around the world and pray and/or give.
  What is the least you can do?
