Parachute for Colombia
Groups and families from all over the U.S. continue to make parachutes for delivery to missionaries who drop them over guerrilla-controlled areas of Colombia. The chutes carry Christian books and radios pre-tuned to a Christian station.
Nancy S. from Indiana sent The Voice of the Martyrs the following letter about a unique birthday party:
“Making the parachutes became the craft at an 11-year-old’s birthday party. Praying for persecuted children in other lands took the place of gift opening. Our desire was that our children would have grateful, compassionate hearts and learn even as children to be ‘the feet of Jesus.’ May Christ’s name be glorified by many from the Bibles released in the parachutes.”
