Kids in Jail
Police in Somalia recently put a mother and father in jail. And they put the couple’s two children in jail with them! One of the children is a two-month old baby.
The police said, “[The couple] should be fully aware that they won’t escape the hand of law enforcement officers and that the spread of Christianity will not be allowed.” Now other Christian families are concerned that they might be arrested, too. Some have fled the country.
The Voice of the Martyrs sponsors safe house where Christians can take refuge from people pursuing them. The safe house has been overwhelmed with new families seeking safety.
