Resources for children and families
Persecution is an issue that affects all ages. When Christians are attacked or excluded or treated unfairly, it’s not just the adults who suffer. Similarly, it’s not just adults who can recognise and respond to injustice. Children know only too well about issues of unfairness and bullying. So, here you will find family-friendly resources, which have been specially designed to help you to discuss the issue of persecution with children and adults alike.
Don't forget, you can keep up to date with the latest news and needs of persecuted believers around the world by signing up for our emails. Get a weekly or monthly dose of inspiration and information delivered to your inbox. It's a great way to pray for, support and speak up on behalf of our persecuted family!
POST IT! (CHILDREN'S LETTER WRITING GUIDE)
Millions of children experience persecution – either because their family is being persecuted for being Christian, or because their choice to follow Jesus is seen as a rejection of their family religion. Either way, they need encouragement. POST IT! is a resource to help children encourage persecuted Christian children through drawings, photos, videos, audio recordings, cards, postcards and yes, even letters!
