ROMANIA — Great character is sometimes forged amid great turmoil. Sabina: Tortured for Christ, the Nazi Years is the story of how God’s love transformed an ambitious, atheistic hedonist into one of the greatest Christian women of the 20th century. GNA reporter Peter Wooding spoke to Voice of the Martyr’s Todd Nettleton to find out how he hopes the story of VOM’s Co-Founder Sabina Wurmbrand will inspire many to encounter the power of forgiveness.
Missions organization Voice of the Martyrs is seeking to inspire people around the world to experience the power of forgiveness through their movie being released this week called Sabina: Tortured for Christ, the Nazi years.
The film tells the story of VOM’s Co Founder Sabina Wurmbrand and how she risked her life to show Christ’s love to Nazi soldiers.
Todd Nettleton – VOM Radio Host:
It is artistically very well done. But it is also an incredibly powerful story of forgiveness and really the forgiveness that Richard and Sabina find in Christ first and then the ways that they live out that forgiveness and to see Sabina who was born into a Jewish family. Her entire family perished in the Nazi death camps to see her welcome Nazi soldiers into her home and even cook a meal for them and serve them and bless them is really a high level of putting feet to forgiveness. Not just a mental idea but really putting feet to it. Putting it into action. This film is going to inspire a lot of people to think about maybe someone they need to forgive. Maybe someone the Lord has been working on them to forgive. Sabina really give us a roadmap to how to get that that point.
And VOM is encouraging people to pray for our persecuted brothers and sisters around the world at this time to also have the strength to demonstrate Christ’s love like Sabina Wurmbrand did.
About The Voice of the Martyrs
The Voice of the Martyrs is a nonprofit, interdenominational Christian missions organization dedicated to serving our persecuted family worldwide through practical and spiritual assistance and leading other members of the body of Christ into fellowship with them. VOM was founded in 1967 by Pastor Richard Wurmbrand, who was imprisoned for 14 years in Communist Romania for his faith in Christ; his wife, Sabina, was imprisoned for three years. In 1965 they were ransomed out of Romania, and soon thereafter they established the global network of missions of which VOM is a part. The Wurmbrands based these missions on Hebrews 13:3, which instructs us to “Remember the prisoners as if chained with them—those who are mistreated—since you yourselves are in the body also.”
