Children from Christian families are often mistreated within their community and face great challenges because of their faith. In some countries, they are specifically targeted for persecution or forced conversion as a way of harming their parents’ ministry and witness. These children quickly learn the high cost of following Christ.
Each year The Voice of the Martyrs works through its network of field leaders around the world to reach the children of persecuted Christians with a special Christmas Care Pack. The contents, which are packed in school-type backpacks, are tailored to meet the unique needs of children in different regions. The backpacks include a variety of practical items for hygiene and education as well as a small toy. But the most important item in each Christmas Care Pack is a full-color, illustrated children’s Bible in the appropriate language. These Bibles are what the children cherish most, because at least 90 percent of children in restricted nations and hostile areas have never owned their own copy of God’s Word.
For only $30, you can ensure that a Christian child in a hostile or restricted nation will receive a Christmas Care Pack, including a Bible of his or her very own, this Christmas.
