The following e-mail that I received included a request which said: “If you find this information about free resources useful, please pass it on. Thank you.” I’m familiar with Voice of the Martyrs and received their materials in the past. These resources provide an excellent opportunity for your kids to learn about children in other countries, as they study cultural geography from a Christian point of view – all for free! So I’m passing it on…
Dear Home Educator,
The Voice of the Martyrs has been providing unique, age appropriate Christian resources for homeschoolers and Christian school teachers since 1996.
VOM offers Kids of Courage resources for children ages 5 to 12. Our 50-plus-page Bold Believers country books, each featuring one country or topic,* are available for free download at www.kidsofcourage.com, or for purchase at www.vombooks.com. The books provide supplementary material for geography, missions, social studies, and current events curriculums. Learning About Islam explores the faith of Muslims from a biblical Christian perspective.
Additional popular resources for children are our Torchhlighters DVDs about Christian heroes of the past, hardcover picture books for younger children, and a VBS curriculum easily adaptable for homeschool groups and co-ops (www.kidsofcouragevbs.com).
Resources for youth are also available at www.vombooks.com. Online classes at www.vomclassroom.com for adults and youth offer persecution studies that provide students “an innovative way to become informed and involved in ministry to the persecuted church.”
For further information and information about additional resources, please check our websites.

Thank you, thank you for making the Kids of Courage downloads available to my family. We have homeschooled all year using your material and my children have LOVED it. We learned so much about the children of the countries we studied and they remember details we would never have gotten otherwise. Thank you so much. — Amy T. Ohio
