Workers from The Voice of the Martyrs visited a place in Kenya where Christians have been persecuted. The workers joined with some Kenyan churches to provide special gifts for the Christian children in the area.
Each child received six pencils, a pencil sharpener, a notebook, and a Swahili Bible. (Swahili is a main language of Kenya.) The children also received solar lanterns.
Their families were using kerosene lanterns. The solar lanterns will allow the children to read the Bible more and to spend more time on homework. Can you guess why?
“Families may spend 10 to 25 percent of their monthly income on kerosene,” said a Christian in Kenya. “The poor light quality and noxious fumes of kerosene lanterns hinder the ability of children to study effectively.
“Now the homes will be illuminated with an environmentally friendly light, and most importantly, children’s lives will be illuminated with the Word of God.”
