"Remember them that are in bonds, as bound with them; and them which suffer adversity, as being yourselves also in the body."
- Hebrews 13:3
Dear Friend of the Persecuted Church -
Welcome to our website, and thank you for your interest in the needs of the persecuted church. Remember is an organization dedicated to meeting those needs and serving as a link between the members of the Body of Christ, overseas and here at home.
More often than not, it is the breadwinner of the family that is targeted for imprisonment or even martyrdom, leaving behind a wife and children in desperate need of support. Our specific ministry objective is to find those families, taking them physical supplies, and providing them with encouragement and a reminder of the hope that they have as members of the Body.
We channel 100% of your donations to the church in need. Remember's operating costs are completely covered by the Bostic Law Firm, allowing us to take all that you give and put it towards our work. Whether God enables you to give in large or small amounts, please be assured that your tax-deductible donation will make a difference.
Remember is also dedicated to linking up the body of Christ, serving as a reminder to the domestic church of the needs of our brothers and sisters. To that end, we would love to make a presentation to your church or interested community group - or empower you to do so! On this website, you will find resources to equip you, and please let us know if we can be of service.
Thank you again for your heart for our suffering fellow Christians. Please let me know if I can help be a resource to you.
Yours for the Body of Christ,
Curtis E. Bostic
Chairman of the Board
Remember Board and Staff at the Freedom House
in the Mae La Refugee Camp, Thailand.

Dr. Robert Clifford was born in San Diego, California, the son of a Naval Aviator. After many military transfers, he and family moved to Charleston, South Carolina - his "hometown" since 1977. While Robert was always raised in a home that honored the Lord, he remembers hearing the Father's call for "relationship" when he was 10 years old. Furthermore, he recalls working out his "salvation, with fear and trembling" (Philemon 2:12) at the age of 13.
Robert was called into Worship Ministry at the age of 15. It was then that he became a member of Calvary Lutheran Church - where he continues to serve the Lord as Worship Leader and as an Elder. It was at Calvary, also, that the Lord introduced him to his best friend and helpmate, Tiffannie. Tiffannie and Robert have been blessed with two daughters, Lauren and Anna. For these girls, it is their parents' greatest desire that they will "taste and see that the Lord is good" and will forever know that they are loved and are "called, according to His purpose." (Psalm 34:8 and 2 Timothy 1:9)
After graduating Furman University, Robert completed medical school and Pediatric Residency training at the Medical University of South Carolina. He is currently on the Clinical Teaching Faculty at MUSC and serves as the Chairman of Pediatrics at both Roper and St. Francis Hospitals. Additionally, he is a full-time General Pediatrician and a practicing partner with Coastal Pediatric Associates, P.A. in Charleston, SC.

Danielle Walker trusted Christ as her Savior at a young age and was raised in a church where there were many opportunities to become involved in ministry, including teaching Sunday School and working with AWANA.
During high school, she was privileged to serve on a short-term mission trip to Bolivia where the team taught English and worked with children in schools and churches.
After graduating from the Oak Brook College of Law in 2004, Danielle went to work at the Bostic Law Firm, PA, in Charleston, South Carolina. She enjoys legal work, working with children, music, and hitching motorcycle rides.
Danielle’s interest in the persecuted church stemmed from the Bible and biographies of Christians such as Richard and Sabina Wurmbrand and others who paid a high price for their faith in Jesus Christ. Although her life and daily challenges are drastically different from those faced by the persecuted church, she hopes to be as faithful to love and serve the Lord as those who are facing true persecution.

He has had the privilege to accompany Remember on his first mission trip to Myanmar in 2013. Since his first encounter with the children and the needs in Myanmar, the Lord has continued to impress on his heart a need for sharing his skills to help in whatever capacity the Lord has given him. He has made subsequent trips to the children's home in Myanmar and has had 2 of his older children accompany the Remember team as well. His heart is for building relationship and seeing the children in Myanmar grow and be self sufficient in learning skills and trades useful to the needs that surround them. His desire is to see the children be used mightily of the Lord and be ministers of the gospel to the lives they touch! He also had the privilege to accompany the Remember team again to South Sudan in 2015. His construction skills and knowlege has been used to help draw along side other brethren to complete various projects and tasks that the Lord has used to minister to him as he sees the hand of the Lord provide every detail and every need in places where supplies for construction are difficult to find. He continues to trust the Lord to order his steps and looks forward to what else He has in store for him.

Coming soon ...
We believe in the inerrancy and supernatural inspiration of the Bible and its divine authority for every age and every day life.
We believe in one God that eternally exists and reveals Himself in three persons - Father, Son, Holy Spirit - having each the same nature and worthy of the same worship and confidence. We believe in God as absolute and sole Creator and Sustainer of the universe.
We believe that Jesus Christ was fully God in the flesh and fully man, that He was born of a virgin and that He lived a sinless life, in which He taught and performed mighty works and wonders He was crucified, shed His blood, died to pay the penalty for our sins and was raised bodily from the dead on the third day. He ascended to the Father's right hand where He is Head of the Church and intercedes for believers. From there He is coming again personally, bodily and visibly to this earth to set up His millennial kingdom.
We believe that the Holy Spirit convicts of sin, regenerates, indwells, baptizes and seals all believers at the moment of their salvation, filling them in response to yieldedness with the goal of conforming them to the image of Christ.
We believe that man was created in the image and likeness of God, but that in Adam's sin the race fell, inherited a sinful nature and became alienated from God. We believe that all men are morally corrupt, and of themselves utterly unable to remedy their lost condition.
We believe that salvation is a gift of God and is received by man through personal faith in Jesus Christ and His sacrifice for sin. We believe that man is justified by grace through faith apart from works and that all true believers, once saved, are kept secure in Christ forever.
