Kenya: Christmas Thanks

“I was amazed when I was given the bag which had a Bible,” shared 14-year-old Timothy M. in a thank you letter to The Voice of the Martyrs. Timothy received one of the more than 30,000 Christmas Care Packs sent last year to children in hostile and restricted nations.

One of the favorite items included in the pack were Action Bibles. The children loved getting a Bible of their very own. Timothy said he liked that the Action Bible has “simple grammatical sentences accompanied by cool pictures which makes the Bible more and more interesting and fast to read.”

Another child, Victor K., said he appreciated the lessons he learned in the Bible. “I learned a great lesson [in] obedience. Surely Samuel told Saul obedience is better than sacrifice,” he wrote.

The Christmas Care Packs also gave one student renewed hope about continuing her education. Phenny A. wrote, “I didn’t know how I was going to go to school next year. But now I have a very big bag. I have books, pens, sets of pencils and rubber (erasers). We are all happy. You brought a solution unto us.”

To those who partnered with VOM on this Christmas Care project, thank you. Your gifts have helped our youngest brothers and sisters living in persecuted nations know that Christians from around the world are standing with them.
