Baking cookies for Nigeria

Cody and Alissa are baking cooking today - chocolate chip, peanut butter and snicker-doodles. They are going to sell them over the next couple of days to raise $25 for a Christmas Care Pack to be sent to a child in Nigeria whose parents were martyred for the sake of the Gospel.

We found this through the Voice of the Martyrs who support those families who are being persecuted for the Gospel. This week is slated as a time prayer for the persecuted church worldwide.

Each Christmas care pack includes a shoulder bag filled with:
• T-shirt
• New Testaments
• Christian Children's books
• bar of soap
• toothbrush & toothpaste
• school supplies
• eating utensils
• some food and a few sweets

You learn more about the persecuted church at the Voice of the Martyr's website.
