(Washington, DC)—[Faithwire.com] Vice President Mike Pence has issued an "urgent call" to assist the persecuted Church around the globe.

It's heart-breaking to think that the Christian population in Syria has been cut in half in just the past six years, and many of those who remain have been displaced from their ancient homes.
