Love in Action

Our family has been supporters of The Voice of the Martyrs for a few years now.   We have had, on two occasions, the privilege of  hearing the Gills speak about their involvement in this organization.  I will never think the same about the persecuted church. I was challenged more than ever to pray for our brothers and sisters in chains.  I want to teach my children that there are Christians all over the world who meet under tremendous persecution...yet they still meet - still proclaim the name of Christ when it could literally cost them their lives.  We American Christians know nothing of that kind of persecution.  I want them to visible help these Christians so we ordered Action Packs from VOM, a simple way to show our love to others.  You order vacuum sealed bags, fill them with the items from a pre-approved list  and then mail them back to Voice of the Martyrs and they distribute them around the world - simple as that. 

For more info about these Action Packs or about The Voice of the Martyrs click here or on the link on my sidebar.

Something as simple as a bar of soap can make a difference

Tess listening to daddy explain why we are stuffing the bags

Remember them that are in bonds, as bound with them; and them which suffer adversity, 
as being yourselves also in the body.
Hebrews 13:3
