Update: Glenna

Indonesia
Children reading a Bible storybook

Glenna is a Christian in a country where it is against the law to teach children about Jesus. She invited children to her house to share Bible stories with them.

A post on this site several months told Glenna’s story. Her husband died, leaving her with three small children and a baby on the way. Then her landlord kicked her out of her apartment because she was a Christian. She and her children turned to the Lord in prayer.

The Voice of the Martyrs and other Christians helped Glenna settle in a new apartment where she continued to share Bible stories with children in the area.

Updates
VOM recently received the following reports from a Christian in Glenna’s country.

  • “Glenna will have to move again. Her neighbors wrote to the police saying that she and the children are making too much noise and the police have politely asked her to move. Her neighbors knew she was a Christian and did not like that.

    “Her son could not even go outside and play because the neighbor children would beat him up and insult him for being a Christian. Glenna went to the doctor, and he said she has problems with her heart as a result of all the shock and stress.”

  • (Received five days later) “I can announce today, the Lord provided a new place for Glenna and her children to live!”

To Think About
If you had to find a new place to live after your parents shared Bible stories with someone, would you want your parents to be quiet and not talk to anyone about Jesus? Ask God to help Glenna’s children continue to trust in him.
