Remembering Mothers

On Mother’s Day this year, remember mothers you know, or mothers around the world, who have sacrificed to bring up their children in the Christian faith. Some mothers who live in countries where Christians are persecuted have lost homes, families, and friends after deciding to follow Christ. Others have lost their lives, leaving children who honor their memory.

You can make a reminder to pray for mothers and children.

Needed
Embroidery hoop
White, all-purpose glue
Scrapbook paper or other decorative paper
Buttons, ribbon, and other items for decorating
Photo of mothers and children from The Voice of the Martyrs’ publications or websites, or other sources

Instructions
1. Trace around the outside of the inner hoop on decorative paper.
2. Cut out the traced circle and glue it onto the top ring of the inner hoop. Let it dry.
3. Glue on a photo, ribbon, buttons or other items to decorate the reminder.
4. Display the hoop on a wall or bulletin board.

And everyone who has left houses or brothers or sisters or father or mother or wife, or children or lands, for My name’s sake, shall receive a hundredfold, and inherit eternal life (Matthew 19:29).

Easter Luminary

Needed: Paper; a 2-inch jar lid or other circular object; scissors; pencils; a small, sturdy craft bag with handles

Note: Some Coptic Christians in Egypt tattoo a cross on the inside of their wrist as a reminder of their Christian faith. Gangs that kidnap Christians remove the cross tattoos of their victims. But they can’t remove Jesus from the Christians’ hearts.
