General resources to help you learn more about the persecuted Church

*I encourage you to check out the stories and resources carefully, before sharing them with your children, as some share details not appropriate for all readers.

Kids of Courage at www.kidsofcourage.com shares a tremendous amount of news and information in a manner sensitive to children of many ages.

Compass Direct News at http://www.compassdirect.org/ is an invaluable resource for staying informed concerning the persecuted Church around the world.

The Voice of the Martyrs is another vital resource.  You can find them at http://www.persecution.com/.  And, don’t miss a chance to help change the life of an imprisoned Christian.  Check out the PrisonerAlert ministry at http://www.prisoneralert.com/ and learn how to write a letter of encouragement to a Christian in prison.

In addition, Joshua Project at http://www.joshuaproject.net/ and Operation World at http://www.operationworld.org/ provide amazing free resources for learning more about the needs of people in countries around the world and how you and your family can pray for them.
