Encourage Children of Persecuted Christians in Colombia

In the mountains of northern Colombia, indigenous communities see Christianity as a threat to their culture. The penalty for following Christ is imprisonment, torture, exile and sometimes death. 

Ernestina* is working to get the gospel into remote areas of the mountains. At night she travels 10 hours on foot with her husband and son. They have managed to reach over 200 indigenous Christians.

Children of persecuted Christians are forced into practicing satanic rituals as part of their cultural traditional education. Open Doors has been able to provide a home for them to safely grow in their faith, including Ernestina’s son. “I know they are being taken care of and are being formed in the love of Christ,” said Ernestina. 

You can write to the home where there are five girls and 10 teenage boys living. This house is caring for and discipling the children of persecuted Christians.

Please send cards and letters by 31 October to PO Box 51236 Tawa, Wellington 5249, New Zealand
