QR Code Description: Most of the people in Turkey are Muslims. A camp in Turkey gives Christian children the opportunity to spend time with other Christians. The words “Isa Masih” in the song mean “Jesus” in Turkish.
QR Code Description: Watch children in Bangladesh singing, jumping rope, playing cricket (a game like baseball), threshing rice, and riding on a bus. Dutch Christians took the video, and the captions are in Dutch, the language of the Netherlands.
Bangladesh has the fourth largest Muslim population in the world. Less than one percent of the people are Christians.
QR Code Description: A refugee is someone who flees from a place of danger to go to a safer place. The video shows Christian refugees in Indonesia who left their homes after Muslims attacked their area several years ago. They are singing about their joy in the Lord.
QR Code Description: Iranian Christians dance while chanting the names of God. On the video, their faces have been hidden to protect their identity because Christians in Iran are in danger of persecution by Iranian officials.
QR Code Description: A few years ago, officials in Vietnam warned members of a house church that it was against the law to display a “Joy to the World” banner at Christmastime. The officials also said the church could not have a Christmas celebration with neighbors and friends.

Officials in Vietnam still give tribal Christians a hard time, and the Christians still sing of their joy in Christ.

QR Code Description: Watch Christians worship at a church in Cuba, where freedom of religion is not always observed, and persecution still happens.
