For he who is not against us is for us – Mark 9:40
This page contains links to other web sites that report on contemporary Christian martyrdom. These organizations engage in original reporting, evangelical witness, political advocacy, refugee services, and other activities. Some of these organizations are led by people who have experienced some degree of persecution firsthand, or are at risk of doing so.
WARNING: Please be sure that your security software (anti-virus, firewall, etc.) is up to date before using these links. Today’s Martyrs researchers have occasionally come under attack while investigating leads. Any of these sites may be compromised by attackers at any time.
Also, please be aware that many of these sites will on occasion be flagged by security software as threats when in fact they are not. Anti-Christians often report these sites to security companies as threats (or even as ‘annoyances’) in an attempt to limit their influence.
First, listed here are web sites of and by people with some experience with persecution or martyrdom, some of whom are taking steps to counter it

Pastor Dennis Balcombe’s Revival Chinese Ministries International
Dr. John Dayal’s Issues of Rights and Justice

Second, Today’s Martyrs would like to recommend International Christian Concern. This organization is the only one that equals Today’s Martyrs in both timeliness and comprehensiveness. Moreover, ICC also reports on the ‘big picture’ or the entire story; Today’s Martyrs gives thumbnail reports on identified Christians only (plus extensive event archives and biographies that often describe the ‘bigger’ picture).
Finally, there are a large number of organizations that can also be recommended. This list will be subject to change.
