Read the previous posts in the #ncpaint series to learn about paintings created by Nigerian children to illustrate sad events that happened to their families.
Read previous stories about Nigerian children (New Kids at the Stephens Centre) (Stephen Centre Kids), and watch videos (Update: Weng Walking) (Kids of Courage Conference: Mary and Martha) on this site.
You and your family or group can send a card of encouragement to Nigerian children.
Suggestions for preparing a card include:
- If you subscribe to The Voice of the Martyrs newsletter, use the Christmas card provided in the December issue which depicts scenes from VOM’s animated DVD, JESUS: He Lived Among Us. Or send a card of your own.
- Do you have a favorite card you have received from someone else? Cut the card apart on the fold and re-use the cover of the card to make a new card.
- Or draw and color a picture of your own on thick paper or cardstock.
- Or print this card and color it.
- Write a note or your favorite Bible verse on the back.
- Attach a photo of your family if you want to.
Draw, color, and write very carefully, doing your best work.
“Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord…” (Colossians 3:23).
Send the cards to The Voice of the Martyrs, P.O. Box 443, Bartlesville, Oklahoma 74005. VOM will deliver the cards to the children of persecuted Christians in Nigeria.
