Camps for Persecuted Kids
Christians in Nigerian are experiencing numerous attacks by Fulani Muslims attackers and Boko Haram terrorists. At times, Christian children are injured in the attacks.
Some of the kids had lived in the same houses since they were born. 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.”
