Finding Life

“For whoever would save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for my sake will find it.”

–Matthew 16:25

Despite imprisonment and other persecution, Sabina and Richard Wurmbrand faithfully advanced the gospel in Romania, abandoning selfish pursuits and obediently surrendering daily to Christ. Following their decades-long ministry work, Sabina and Richard co-founded The Voice of the Martyrs.


By choosing to “lose” their earthly lives, sacrificing their comfort and safety in this world, they found true life in Jesus Christ. Today, our persecuted Christian brothers and sisters are finding life that counts for eternity at the cost of harassment, imprisonment and even death.

We pray for our persecuted Christian family members who choose to walk this path in obedience to Christ. Like Sabina and Richard Wurmbrand, and countless others throughout church history, they are examples for us. VOM’s IDOP short film, Finding Life, will inspire your family, group, class or church to walk that same path of obedience.
