Parents and Teachers
As we celebrate Jesus’ resurrection, we remember his last words to the disciples before his ascension into heaven. “You will be my witness … to the end of the earth” (Acts 1:8). Jesus also promised in John 15:20 that his true followers will be persecuted. The growth of the church and the spread of God’s Word have been accompanied by struggle and opposition.
The stories in the April 2021 The Voice of the Martyrs magazine can help you introduce children to the difficulties Christians encounter when sharing God’s Word in places where it is not welcome. You can share stories from the magazine and this site about Bible distribution and Bible smuggling with your children. Then pray together for the people in the stories.
