Dh and I are making plans to spend a week in China next month. It is going to be very, very, very cold but also very affordable...after all, it is winter! Only the crazies go to China on vacation during the winter! And only the uber-crazy choose to celebrate their 10th wedding anniversary (albeit a few months early) in such a cold place...Have I mentioned that it is going to be really cold?
Dash expressed his concern to daddy the other day.
Daddy, you better be careful in China! If you read your Bible there, the church police will put you in jail for a very, very long time! And you can't pray in China or read your Bible or go to church.
This all came about when Dash noticed my Voice of the Martyrs poster on the wall of our schoolroom. It was a great springboard to talk about how we need to be thankful for the country we live in and the freedoms we have. It also allowed us to talk at length about how we need to pray for these people in other countries and even send them cards and letters.
I ran across this VOM site today that is more suited for children. Check it out and read it with your kids! Take every opportunity to encourage a heart for missions, a compassion for lost souls and to show them God's power in these people's lives!
