Engage Magazine, a ministry of the American Family Association, launched the Orange Letter Campaign in 2015, when the world witnessed ISIS terrorists march Egyptian Coptic Christians, dressed in orange jumpsuits, onto a beach in Libya and kill them.

That first-ever campaign rallied fellow Christian believers to send letters of encouragement to the family members of the slain Coptics, and subsequent campaigns reached out to Christians fleeing violence in Syria and underground Christians in North Korea. 

This year, Engage is partnering with missionary-sending ministry Global Outreach to encourage missionaries around the world during the Christmas season.

“As a reminder,” says AFA spokesman Wesley Wildmon, “that we’re thinking about them and we care about them.”

Engage reaches young adults and so-called Millennials with a radio show, online blog, and a magazine. 

Wildmon says the messages to missionaries can be typed in an email and sent to Orange@afa.net.

Videos of some missionaries receiving the letters will be posted on EngageMagazine.net.

"It will inspire you to make this a part of their Christmas gift,” he predicts, “as they sit down around Christmas time. They can read these words of encouragement from us in America."
