A group of girls from the Tween Time ministry in Texas helps and prays for persecuted Christians. The group includes about 20 sixth grade girls who attend various churches and two different public schools.
Their leader, Marilyn M., used clippings from VOM newsletters to make a poster about suffering Christians in Sudan and about VOM’s Action Pack project.
When groups or families order Action Packs from VOM, they receive special bags and a list of items to put in the packs for Christians in Pakistan, Iraq, and Sudan. Examples of items include blankets, jackets, socks, writing pads, pens, and other needed supplies. The bags are shipped back to VOM for distribution.
Marilyn wrote Action Pack items on sticky notes, one item on each note. She attached the notes to the poster. Each girl took a sticky note home and shopped for the item with her family. The group then packed the packs, enclosed photos of their group, and sent them to VOM. They also made Africa “Prayer and Aware” magnets for their school lockers. The magnets remind them to pray and to let others know about the persecution of Christians.
VOM is receiving reports and testimonies from Sudanese Christians telling how they have been blessed by receiving Action Packs and by finding out that Christians in America care about them. The reports will be featured in an upcoming VOM newsletter and Kids of Courage blog posts.
