God Helps Children’s Teacher and Her Family

Children reading a Bible storybook

In some countries, it is against the law to teach children about God and Jesus. Sunday schools, children’s Bible clubs, and Vacation Bible Schools are not allowed.

Glenna, a Christian woman in one of those countries, knows that Jesus said, “Let the little children come to Me, and do not forbid them…” (Matthew 19:14). She invited children to her house so she could share Bible stories with them.

Several months ago, Glenna’s husband died, leaving her with three small children and a baby on the way. Then her landlord found out she was a Christian and kicked her and her children out of their apartment.

“When we heard about our need to move, I could do nothing but take my children’s hands and we started praying together,” said Glenna.

The Voice of the Martyrs and other Christians are helping Glenna settle in a new apartment. “Praise God, he provided a wonderful place for me and my children,” said Glenna. “It is big enough for my family and provides a possibility to continue working with kids.

“I am thinking and praying how I can show God to the children and parents I work with — not only share Bible stories, but show a living God! All of them had an opportunity to see God in this situation. They saw that he is a living God who takes care of us and provides for all our needs!”
