Christmas Gifts for Persecuted Christians
Christmas Care Packs
Every year, The Voice of the Martyrs and Kids of Courage readers sponsor Christmas Care Packs for children in countries where Christians are persecuted. This year VOM will again be distributing Christmas Care Packs to children throughout some of the more than 60 nations where VOM works. The packs will be customized for each region. But all will include a backpack, school items, hygiene items like toothbrushes, and Christian books.
To find out how you can sponsor a pack, see The Voice of the Martyrs magazine or visit this site.
Village Outreach Kits
Village Outreach Kits provide Bibles, other Christian materials, and DVD players for pastors and evangelists in countries where Christians are persecuted. Jan S., a Sunday school director, wrote a letter to The Voice of the Martyrs about a project at her church.
“We are a small church in Idaho that just began a new Sunday school program last fall,” Jan wrote. “The children have been saving their Sunday school offering to purchase a Village Outreach Kit. They were excited when we finally reached the [full amount] mark on our chart!
“We hope that this Outreach Kit will bring the comfort of Christ to those who are suffering and lost…. I am crying as I write this letter, and I think of those who risk their lives to take the good news of God’s love to those who may later die for Christ’s sake.
“We have been in ministry nearly 40 years but have never shared in the sufferings of Christ in that way. May God’s comfort and love and protection go with you!”
