Open Doors

We support persecuted Christians to survive in places of extreme hostility

Charity Registration No. 1125684


I  have been a supporter of Open Doors for a number of years because of the burden I feel for those who are undergoing unbelievable levels of persecution simply for their beliefs and with few people to speak up for them. 

Their names are unknown and they are abused, imprisoned, tortured and live in fear of their lives under a brutal regime.

I have a particular burden for North Korea and have been thinking about doing a Muskathlon for a while to encourage and support our brothers and sisters in Christ. What tipped the balance this year was having the privilege of hearing "Hae Woo" (which is not even her real name as her family would be in danger if it were known) tell her story about escaping after 16 years in prison  (and meeting her) and the Muskathlon being in South Korea in 2019. 

I love a physical challenge in an extreme environment and will probably do the 75 mile bike ride though I am not ruling out one of the running options either.

It is just my way of doing what I can to support them. Whilst the sum of money to be raised is huge, it is a very small price to ask in relation to what they are paying on a daily basis so thank you for considering giving any support you can.

If you want to support the work of Open Doors on a regular rather than one off basis then you can contact me for a DDR form and this will help achieve my target (eg £8 a month counts as £250 towards my total and £25 a month equates to £1000)

None of the money raised will be used by me for my expenses as I will cover those.

Any questions, please contact me on
