Threatened: Modern Witnesses


*If you’d like to read the first post in the Modern Witnesses series, click here.

We’ve been talking about how hard it is for Christians in many countries to worship God the way they want to. Many of them are threatened, attacked, and persecuted because they refuse to stop following Jesus.

This morning, our Sunday School teacher brought a globe to class. We sat down on the floor and looked for all of the countries we’ve been learning about this year. As we remembered the stories we’ve heard and found the countries, we prayed for the Christians and their families. Will you find a map and pray with me?
