About 95 percent of the people in Pakistan are Muslims. Children in Muslim lands are not taught that Jesus is the Son of God or that He saves people from sin.

Recently some children in Pakistan received booklets that tell the good news of Jesus. You can see them looking at the booklet in the video.

The music played and the booklets shown in the video are in Urdu, one of the many languages spoken in Pakistan. Unlike English, Urdu is written from right to left instead of left to right.

Turkish Children

Zack, Mark, and Paul are brothers who live in Turkey. They and their mother told about Children’s Day, a holiday in Turkey that is observed on April 23rd. Read what they said below.

Children’s Day is celebrated on the anniversary of the first assembly of Turkey’s parliament in 1920. [A parliament is a group that makes a nation’s laws. Congress is the lawmaking body of the United States.]

The parliament is run by Turkish children on April 23rd. The children play the roles of elected officials. They give speeches and elect a president and present a speech on TV.

It is a time to celebrate with many parades and ceremonies. The largest ceremony is in the capital, Ankara. They decorate schools, parks, and apartment windows with flags and colorful streamers.

There are bright colors and a lot of red everywhere. There is music and happy dancing. The costumes for dancing are nice and bright. One of our favorite parts is that toys are sold for half price at some of the stores.

Turkey’s laws allow “freedom of religion.” But sometimes police give Christians a hard time if they share their faith outside the church. Muslims who become Christians are often persecuted by families, friends, and bosses.

To Think About
What would you do if you were elected president for one day?

    Note: Kim Jong Un, the leader of North Korea, will celebrate his 32nd birthday on January 8, 2015. Pray that he will open his heart to the love of Jesus and will no longer persecute Christians.

    It is very difficult for North Koreans to learn about Jesus. North Koreans are not allowed to own Bibles. Very few people are permitted to have the Internet, so they can’t learn about Jesus from people in other countries. TVs in North Korea show only programs approved by the government.

    The Voice of the Martyrs sponsors Scripture balloon launches to send Scriptures to North Korea by balloons. Christians try to find other ways to get the truth to North Korea.

    Some North Koreans have left their country to find a better life in other places. Sometimes they find out about Jesus in their new lands. Brave North Korean Christians return to North Korea at great risk to tell their family and friends what they have learned.

    The video clip below shows two men watching a Christian message that was smuggled into the country on a thumb drive. One of the men holds a New Testament from a VOM-sponsored ministry pack.

    Note the pictures of two men on the wall. North Koreans are required to display pictures of their leaders in their homes. They are expected to look to their leaders for all their needs. The courageous Christian who took the video wanted to show that God’s Word also truly exists inside North Korea.

    Pray for North Koreans.

    Workers from The Voice of the Martyrs visited northern Iraq to encourage Christians there. They talked to believers who have been driven from their homes by fighters who belong to a radical Muslim group called Islamic State (IS).

    Watch the video clip in this post to learn about the first day of the VOM workers’ visit. As you watch, look for answers to the following questions.

    • What kind of building are the Christians living in?
    • What do they use sheets for?
    • What do all the families have to share?
    • How long will they have to stay in the building?
    • What can we pray for the families?

    To Think About
    The Iraqis said they never had silence in the building. Think of a large room in your church or school. If they room were divided into 26 spaces and your family had to live in one of the spaces, what else would you lack besides silence?

    (Note: Additional clips from this video diary appeared on PersecutionBlog.com. Preview before showing to children.)
