“Missionary” Ruth

Philippines

Ruth, a 14-year-old Christian in the Philippines, wants to be a missionary someday. But she isn’t waiting until “someday” to share the gospel with others. Ruth already talks about her faith with girls at her school.

One day, Ruth’s father gave her a book about brave Christians who were persecuted for their faith in Christ. “It made me cry,” Ruth said. But it also inspired her. She took the book to school and told her friends about it. Soon other girls borrowed the book and read it.

Ruth and her family prayed that God would use the book to change the hearts of girls who were not following Jesus. God answered their prayers!

“There have been changes in two classrooms,” Ruth’s father said. “In the past, students in some classes were wild and troublesome. There has been a change in the attitude and behavior of many students. It even surprised the teachers. Even the principal says there is a difference.”

Some of the teachers have asked Ruth if they can read her book, too!

Note: In parts of the Philippines, radical Muslims have attacked Christians and their homes. They want to force all Christians to leave the areas.

Share a book about courageous Christians with others. Pray that the books or DVDs will encourage them to serve him.
