The December 2019 issue of The Voice of the Martyrs magazine tells stories of Christians who became fugitives for the sake of Christ. As VOM president Cole Richards says:
“Part of our ministry at VOM is providing safe houses as temporary shelter for believers while they are on the run from persecutors. Another part of our work is providing sanctuary — places of relative safety within incredibly difficult and dangerous mission fields — where believers can be restored and/or equipped for future service. In all cases, the provision of a safe house or sanctuary is intended to help advance the gospel. It is neither surrender nor defeat, but rather a wise choice to temporarily withdraw from the front lines as part of a lifelong commitment of obedience to Christ.”
The issue also features stories and updates from China, Uganda, Nepal, Iraq, Pakistan, and Nigeria. You can share stories of Christians in these countries from the magazine and this site with your children, then pray together for the people in the stories.
