Can Lid Christmas Crafts

The previous post describes a “Christmas tree” decorated with photos of persecuted Christians glued to frozen juice can lids. VOM volunteers also made prayer reminder tree ornaments out of can lids. (See the photo.)

The volunteers provided the following instructions.

  1. Cut photos photocopied from VOM publications or websites to fit lids from frozen juice cans. Glue them on with glue or decoupage medium.
  2. With adult help, punch a hole near the top of the lids.
  3. Decorate with yarn, beads, or other items.
  4. Thread a piece of yarn or ribbon through the hole so the ornament can be hung on a Christmas tree.

Pakistan: Escape from a Snake


Rebekha was angry. Her teacher expected her to sit by a new girl in her ninth grade class in Pakistan. The new girl was a Christian, and Rebekha hated Christians! She chose to sit on the floor rather than sit by Mary, the new girl.

Rebekha then had to miss school because she was sick. She needed help studying for a test. None of the other Muslim girls would help her study. Mary offered to help, and Rebekha began to like Christians a little more.

A Bad Attitude
Some Christians started a sewing class in Rebekha’s village, and Mary invited Rebekha to attend. Rebekha went to the class, but she sat separately from the Christian girls. She still did not like Christians very well.

The Christian girls were sad about Rebekha’s attitude. They spent much time in prayer for her.

Rebekha realized that she could find nothing wrong with the Christian girls. After two months, she asked Mary for a Bible. Mary happily gave her one. Mary asked God to help Rebekha understand the Bible and follow Christ.
