A war in Syria has left many people without homes. Many Christians have fled to nearby countries because of the fighting. But others have stayed. Some of those who have remained in the country stayed behind so they could lead lost people to Jesus. (About 90 percent of the people in Syria are Muslims.)
The Voice of the Martyrs has sent help to Christians who have fled Syria and to those who have stayed. Last December, VOM supported distributions of Bibles and gifts like hats and school supplies to several hundred children. As the children received their gifts, they could hear gunfire and bombings in the distance.
During the distributions, each program began with prayer followed by the Christmas story from the Bible. Without being asked, some of the children shared with the group why they believed in Jesus. As a result, some of the other children who attended placed their faith in Christ.
This year, 10 more programs will be held for children in the area.

To Think About
Have you ever told someone without being asked why you believe in Jesus? Ask God to lead you to people He wants you to tell about His love and His Son.
