How can your family encourage the persecuted church?

Every day, missionaries from your church, friends working overseas and even new Christians right here in the United States are in danger because of their faith.
While God doesn't call everybody to the mission field, we're all called to stand in the gap for families worldwide-and it's easier than you might think.
4 ways to bless believers...
1. Pray!
We serve a God who is mighty to save--and eager to answer. Ask Him to protect persecuted Christians and their families at home and overseas.
2. Adopt a missionary family from your church.Ask your pastor for ideas and contact information--as well as a list of needs and prayer requests.
3. Talk to your kids. Knowing that other children around the world are standing for Christ can help them stay firm in their faith at school.
4. Share stories.Take time to be challenged and inspired by the stories and updates of families just like yours. Discuss with your family how you can apply their example of faith to your everyday life.
As in the days of Noah...
