Children Passing Out Tracts...

Children are a wonderful "tool" in passing out tracts and witnessing. People are willing to take tracts from a little child and hear things they have to say because "they're so cute". Yet, words are words and the words of the Lord can't be ignored whether spoken by a child or an adult. The unsaved may try to let it pass by, but you are planting a seed and farther along the road God may bring someone around to water and tend to that little seed you planted.

Since I've been on the topic of tracts and since I just got an e-mail this morning telling of Christian children attacked in India by Hindu extremists because they were passing out Bible tracts at school. I thought I'd post it on here so you can pray for those Christians around the world that are standing firm in the Lord.

Christians Attacked, Children Beaten for Distributing Bible Tracts -
" On April 2, pastors and members of the Manna Ministry in Krishnapuram, Andhra Pradesh, were beaten by a group of 20 Hindu extremists. "Believers were returning from an evangelistic outreach when their car was stopped by the attackers. One of the ministry's leaders, Pastor Gopal, sustained serious injuries. The militants also tore up the Christians' evangelistic tracts." Ask God to heal Pastor Gopal. Meanwhile, on March 17, school children from Toopran School in Telungana Village, Andhra Pradesh, were threatened and beaten by Hindu extremists while they were distributing Bible tracts in the school compound. "A group of Hindu extremists stopped the school children from further distribution of tracts. The extremists beat the children and threatened them." Pray believers in Telungana Village will be encouraged and protected. Pray that Indian Christians will continue to share the gospel with boldness despite increased persecution. Ask God to use their testimonies to draw nonbelievers into fellowship with Him."
