Parents and Teachers
Parents and grandparents, let us carefully consider the spiritual leadership we are providing our children and grandchildren (Deuteronomy 4:9–10, 11:19) to make sure we are leading our families to be on mission — on God’s mission. We should first ask ourselves, “How will I advance God’s eternal purposes in the fallen world?” and then turn to our own household and ask, “How will we do so as a family?” – Cole Richards, VOM president
The June 2020 issue of The Voice of the Martyrs magazine features stories of families on God’s mission in Colombia.
*David, Gloria, and their three children share God’s love in areas controlled by armed groups of fighters. On weekends they transport 200 children, 50 at a time, by boat to their home for a Bible lesson.
*Manuel and Sandra have to be careful about what they say in church, because armed groups send spies to listen to the sermons.
*Sara joined a guerrilla group at age 14. “God came and got me when I repented,” she said.
You can share stories of Christians in Colombia from the magazine and this site with your children, then pray together for the people in the stories.
