"America's First Martyrs" released this week, in remembrance of their sacrifice, 445 yrs. ago

This edition is being published as a memorial to the lives of the Martyrs of Matanzas, 445 years after they perished at Ft. Caroline, Florida . It is dedicated to the many intercessors who have fought to possess the birthright of this nation.
Sept. 21, 2010 - PRLog -- A moving story of the martyrdom of over 350 French Huguenots who sailed to our land in 1564, seeking religious freedom. After an initially successful attempt at colonization in northeastern Florida, almost all died for their faith when a Spanish fleet of conquistadors put them to the sword.
In this hour, in the United States, the persecution against those who hold our faith seems to be growing more pronounced by the day. Soon, we too may have to draw directly from the wellspring of our unknown Huguenot pioneers, who faced the sword without fear on behalf of the uncompromised gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ. May the flame of faith that they carried across that vast ocean 444 years ago be yet rekindled in our day, and may revival fires burn across our land in these tumultuous times!
Sara C. Ballenger
