Every day, about 15,000 people in China become Christians. The new Christians would like to teach their children about Jesus. But they don’t know how! When the parents were children, many of them had never even heard of Jesus.
The Bible tells us that children should be taught about God and encouraged to come to Jesus. (See Deuteronomy 6:4–7 and Luke 18:16). But in some parts of China, officials say children under 18 must not be taught about God and Jesus.
“Where can they learn?” two Christian couples with children asked God and each other.
God answered the parents’ prayers. The principal of the school that their children attended was a Christian, and she was willing to keep a secret. She knew a few other Christian parents with the same problem. She figured out a way for the children to learn Bible stories.
