Voice of the Martyrs: Teaching Material for Kids
I just got this e-mail and I wanted to share it with you. I have gotten the Voice of the Martyr’s, Kid’s of Courage, publication for years. It is wonderful. I read it to my children and to the Sunday School class. We do some of the projects or recipes in class. Our Sunday school donations go to Voice of the Martyrs and Compassion International.
“VOM encourages parents and teachers to become fully informed about the persecution facing Christians around the world. To help achieve this goal, The Voice of the Martyrs publishes Kids of Courage materials for children ages 5 to 13 so that families and schools can include children in learning about and serving the persecuted church. Kids of Courage publications are committed to:
1. Educating students about courageous Christians and countries that restrict Christian worship.
2. Encouraging students toward greater spiritual growth by giving them examples of those who are risking all for Christ.
3. Providing practical opportunities for students to pray for and aid today’s heroes of the faith.
Kids of Courage newsletters are published quarterly and are not sent out as a separate subscription. The Kids of Courage updates supplement The Voice of the Martyrs newsletter for adults with activities and stories related to recent information in VOM publications.
Please visit www.KidsofCourage.com to sign up for the Kids of Courage newsletter and to download free resources, or call (800) 747-0085.
For teenage youth, VOM has created the Underground Reality DVD series. In the first installment of the series Underground Reality young adults travel to Vietnam and discover what it’s like to work in the underground church.
In the second installment of Underground Reality, a team of young adults travel to Colombia where they meet widowed women, reformed prisoners and pastors marked for death by anti-Christian forces.
This Underground Reality DVD series helps introduce youth groups to the reality of the persecuted church and forces youth to ask challenging questions such as, “How far are you willing to go for your faith?” and “What are we willing to risk for Jesus?”
For more reflection, youth leaders should consider the Underground Reality: Vietnam Youth Study. The Youth Study Kit includes a leader’s guide and ten full-color student field manuals, as well as weekly video segments on DVD and a CD-ROM containing printable handouts and additional material.
Please visit www.UndergroundReality.com to place an order for the Underground Reality DVDs or Youth Study Kit, or call (800) 747-0085.
For additional resources for families and children, please visit www.VOMBooks.com.”
Check out their great resources! There are many incredible downloads that are free. I use their materials to tell my children of the pain others go though for their faith. We all are called to give everything for Jesus. I want my family, my Sunday School and children everywhere to be ready to stand-up for their faith. It is good to be prepared. I also wanted to use the material for a VBS this year, but we will be on a family road trip this summer. I am preparing my lessons now so that other wonderful people at my church can teach the children.
