Remember the persecuted this summer (Part 2)

Share the message with your family!

Share the message of today’s persecuted
Church with your whole family this summer!
This summer, engage your entire family with the call to remember those in prison (Hebrews 13:3). Are you planning to go away on holiday? Bring along reading material from VOM, which will inspire even the youngest of readers to boldly live for Jesus Christ (visit our online catalogue for our list of kids’ resources).

You can also keep your kids occupied this summer with VOM’s engaging children’s ministry site, www.KidsOfCourage.com. Updated frequently, this site provides age-appropriate ways for your children to learn about real-life “kids of courage” who follow the Lord despite great risks.

Encourage the teens or young adults in your family to get connected with Thirteen Three, a ministry that links youths across Canada with young people facing persecution for their faith worldwide. For more, go to www.ThirteenThree.ca.

Finally, invite women of all ages to engage with Release Women, VOM’s new ministry that serves our persecuted sisters in Christ. Find out how you can get involved by visiting our website.

Want another way to keep your family busy this summer? If you are in the Mississauga area, consider volunteering as a family for several hours at our head office, helping our staff with tasks such as database entry, preparing book orders, and assembling outgoing mail. This is a great way for youths to accumulate volunteer hours! Contact our office for more information or to set up a day that is convenient for you.
