The childhood and adolescent years of an indigenous Christian in Colombia are precarious. They live in areas with paramilitary or criminal groups, and may either be forced to fight for these groups or be killed by them. If their parents are church leaders or evangelists, there’s a very high chance they will lose them.

To protect these children and teenagers, Open Doors has two centres in the indigenous parts of Colombia, where they can grow up in safety, go to school, and develop their relationship with Christ together.

Surrounded by so much opposition, it is easy for the Christian youths to lose hope.

Write a letter of encouragement to them, to remind them of the hope we have in Christ Jesus.

“By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.”

John 13:35
