A Great Idea from Torchlighters

Torchlighters

Torchlighters DVDs tell the story of real Christian heroes who faced persecution. Student and teacher guides are available free at www.torchlighters.org and in the Downloads section of this site.

Brandy, a teacher who uses the DVDs and guides, said, “Here’s a little something I am putting together for the children in our Wednesday night kids’ class as we wrap up our Torchlighters study.” Brandy copied pages from the guides on cardstock, four to a page. She made booklets for her students to help them remember what they had learned. (See the photo)

Nazeera and Her Children

Yemen

The story below is from Stef, the children’s website of SDOK, The Voice of the Martyrs’ sister mission in the Netherlands.

Nazeera is a mother from Yemen. In Yemen, they are not allowed to convert to a different religion. The government wants everyone to be a Muslim.

Yet Nazeera still became a Christian. Her family got angry and took her kids away from her. Nazeera will be allowed to see them only if she becomes a Muslim again.

Would you pray that Nazeera will be able to see her kids again soon, and that she will feel the faithfulness and comfort of the Lord God?

Christian Girl in Hiding

Miriam

Miriam is 9 years old and she lives in a country where most of the people are Muslims. Even though both of her parents are alive, she has to live at a secret location in an orphanage.

This all started when Miriam’s mother fell to the temptation to become a Muslim, and she left her family and married a Muslim man. She wanted Miriam to join her and become a Muslim, too. She started a lawsuit to try to get custody of Miriam.

But Miriam wanted to stay faithful to Jesus and to live with her father. However, it was not safe to stay with her father. So she was sent to a secret orphanage.

Her mom’s new husband is trying everything he can think of to find Miriam. Every night, Miriam asks God for a solution to her problem so she can live with her father again. Now she can see him only once a month.

Please join Miriam in praying for a solution.

To Talk About

  • In a country where most people are Muslims, why might some Christians be tempted to become Muslims?
  • What are some things people can do to stay close to Jesus when they face temptations?
