Here is some exciting news from our Kids of Courage blog. Praise the Lord for children who love the Lord!
Nine-year-old Anna F. and her family read VOM publications and pray for persecuted Christians. After learning about Christians who worship in “underground” (secret) churches, Anna wrote the following report.
“Some Christians in the world are not as blessed as we are. In the morning, as we get up to go to church, we don't even think about the risk that the police could find our beloved church today. Think of this: You're in the underground church, praying, with about 50 Christians around you when suddenly, an officer bursts in the hidden door of the underground church.
“‘Just as I thought. A bunch of Christians!’ he says to another officer. You are afraid. Will he arrest you too? Your fears come true. The officer grabs the pastor and you. He shoves you roughly at the other officer. ‘Take this one to the prison,’ he commands. Your prison cell is tiny and dark. You are angry and afraid.
“You pray to God, ‘Lord, why are you making me suffer like this? I know you want me to love my enemies, but how can I love these people who have thrown me in jail? Lord, I'm helpless in here. You're the only one who can help me. Please help me now.’ You can feel the love of the Holy Spirit flooding through you. You know you have been blessed. “These Christians need help. Pray for these Christians tonight as you go to bed.”
