19 May Lost Childhood
first a bit of
As a Kurdish mother explained the plight of her family, she sadly told us, “I’m very sad for children. Not for me, not for [my] husband, just for children.”
There is a whole generation of children not in school. These are our children. They need education to grow into strong, healthy leaders of their nation. Without education, children are more vulnerable to oppression, trafficking, extreme ideologies, and poverty. These children have seen war and destruction and are showing the signs of stress and trauma.
“And whoever welcomes a little child like this in my name welcomes me.”
Pray that God will intervene for the children. Pray for the 10,000 child refugees in Europe without parents to protect them. Pray for opportunities for education and training to develop, even during this time of transition.
Thank you for your faithful prayers!
