Does your church include kids in remembering persecuted Christians?
Georgia Kids Pray
Cindy Clark, Christen Flowers, and their children’s ministry team in Georgia recently packed 25 Family Med Packs for Christians who have been driven from their homes by Islamic extremists.
“On Sunday, we gathered all our children, ages 4-11, to the front of our sanctuary to hold our Family Med Packs then lead our congregation in praying for the families who will be receiving them,” Cindy emailed VOM. “What a blessed time of prayer we had for these families! It blessed us beyond words to be able to be a part of this opportunity to love our brothers and sisters in Christ who are being persecuted for Jesus’ name sake….
“Thank you to everyone at The Voice of the Martyrs for showing us how we can partner with you in loving our brothers and sisters in Christ around the world who are being persecuted for bearing our Lord Jesus’ name. They are always on my heart and in my prayers.”
Oklahoma Kids Assemble Packs
A church in Oklahoma recently packed Family Med Packs during their children’s program. Items for the packs were lined up in separate containers on a table. The children took one item out of each container and added it to their pack. They presented their packs to VOM, then each child decorated a “prayer box” to take home. Children’s workers and parents helped them write prayer points on small pieces of paper to go in the boxes as reminders of how to pray for persecuted Christians every day.
