“i am n” Video Series: Part Six – Sacrifice

“They could have kept their future, their homes, all their possessions, but they chose to sacrifice them, instead of denying Christ.”

We conclude this video series, produced by The Voice of the Martyrs, from their “i am n” campaign. This video features “sacrifice.”

“Sacrifice” is defined as “surrender of something for the sake of something else; the act of giving up something that you want to keep especially in order to get or do something else or to help someone; something given up or lost; an act of offering to a deity something precious.”

Image if you lived, everyday, with the danger of losing everything you have-including your life, and the lives of your loved ones-just by making the decision to convert to Christianity … or if “word got out” that you were a follower of Jesus …

“We left our homes, having nothing, and we lost everything, but we did not lose our faith in Christ Jesus.”

“If they persecuted me, they will also persecute you.”

“i am n” Video Series: Part Four – Joy

“I have found truly jubilant Christians only in the Bible, in the Underground Church and in prison.”
Richard Wurmbrand, Founder, Voice of the Martyrs

We continue this video series, produced by The Voice of the Martyrs from their “i am n” campaign. This video features “joy.”

“Joy” is defined as “a feeling of great happiness; a source or cause of great happiness; something or someone that gives joy to someone; the emotion evoked by by the prospect of possessing what one desires; a state of happiness; a source or cause of delight.”

Image if you lived, everyday, with the danger of losing everything you have-including your life, and the lives of your loved ones-just by making the decision to convert to Christianity … or if “word got out” that you were a follower of Jesus …
“Is it possible to find Christians with joy in the midst of these types of trials? …
The words of God, the words of Jesus, are different from the words of people … All of this is nothing compared to the reward that you will be receiving in Heaven with Him.”

“i am n” Video Series: Part Three- Forgiveness

We continue this video series, produced by The Voice of the Martyrs from their “i am n” campaign. The second video features “forgiveness.”

“Forgiveness” is defined as “the act of forgiving someone or something; the attitude of someone who is willing to forgive other people … to stop feeling anger toward (someone who has done something wrong); to stop blaming (someone); to stop feeling anger about (something).”

Image if you lived, everyday, with the danger of losing everything you have-including your life, and the lives of your loved ones-just by making the decision to convert to Christianity … or if “word got out” that you were a follower of Jesus …

Oh … as you’ll see in this video … you are given 3 distinct choices:
1. Change your religion/Denounce Christ/Convert to Islam
2. Pay a steep tax.
3. Be killed.

“Even more compelling than stories of their perseverance under persecution is they way they are able to extend forgiveness to those who persecute them … Without Christ, forgiveness is a foreign concept … “

Remembering, Honoring, and Thinking: “The Wall” by Eve Bunting

Several years ago, this book was the “Book of the Month” that was shared with all of the students at our Elementary School. Each month, there would be a particular “character trait” focused upon, and a book was shared with the students, which featured that trait “in action.”

I’ve been wanting to share this video with you for a long time. It is a video performance/narration of the book, which was written by Eve Bunting, and illustrated by Richard Himler. Unique to this video performance was the addition of historical video footage, interspersed throughout the book, giving an overview of the War in Vietnam.

The Children’s Book “The Wall” tells of a young boy and his father, who have traveled to Washington, DC to see the Vietnam Veterans Memorial. They have come to find the name of the boy’s grandfather, his dad’s father. As the father and son look for the grandfather’s name, they meet others who are visiting the memorial. They see flowers, letters, flags, and personal keepsakes that have been left at the wall. Finally, they find the name they are looking for.

Eve Bunting was born December 19, 1928, in Northern Ireland. She, her husband, and children immigrated to the United States in 1958. Eve Bunting has written more than 250 books, from novels to picture books, covering a wide array of subjects, both fiction and non-fiction. She has a rare gift for writing about serious, important subjects in a way that even young children can understand.

Indeed, Eve Bunting’s work has the ability to touch hearts of all ages.

I had wanted to share this, and wanted to wait, until a time came when we, as a nation, are not currently engaged in a war. I don’t know if such a time will come. I do know that there is never a day which dawns over our Free Country, in which we should not take the time to honor those who have served our nation, given their lives for our nation, and are serving this nation … right now.
Every day we should “Remember, Honor … and, Think.”

Here’s a link to a current list of all of Eve Bunting’s books, from the FantasticFiction Website:
