If Global Initiatives Week began with the goal of helping people think differently about the world, then the Persecuted Church event fit the mold perfectly.
As the week wound down to its last event, Liz Arnold stood at the church door pleasantly welcoming several dozen visitors. It had been an exhausting schedule, but for the director of Gundersen’s Global Partners Department, she was living out her calling.
“My passion is connecting people in La Crosse with needy people around the world,” she said.
This became evident as Arnold opened the meeting and told the audience that while “we hold all people in prayer,” this event would focus on the persecuted Christian Church – the world’s most victimized religion. More Christians have been martyred in this century alone than in the previous 19.
