Camps for Persecuted Kids
The previous post told about Nigerian children who were injured in attacks by Fulani attackers. Other kids in Nigeria have been persecuted by Boko Haram terrorists in the country.
Some kids had lived in the same houses since they were born. Then they watched as terrorists burned down their homes. Others saw family members attacked.
Do you think that some of the kids were angry and sad? They were. The Voice of the Martyrs sponsored camps for teens who needed help getting through their anger and sadness.
The teens made friends with other kids at the camp who were also sad and angry. Together they worked to understand the Bible’s lessons about forgiving enemies. The camp leaders hoped the teens would also learn that they did not have to see revenge against those who persecuted them.
VOM workers said, “Pray that they will continue to find peace in Christ and share their eternal hope with others in their community.”
