They were prisoners in a POW camp in Vietnam during the Vietnam War. Isolated and tortured, they knew they needed hope to survive.
One by one, the inmates started tapping hopeful messages to the others by using their tin-metal drinking cup.
This is the story that Bev shares as our Featured Post this week. She reminds us that while we may feel like prisoners in our own homes this year, we too need to keep hope alive for others and for ourselves.
“Remember that God is not flummoxed or frustrated by what’s going on. Ask Him what He would have you learn in this wilderness season.”
Read all of Bev’s post here for practical ways to send and receive messages of hope. They include: calling friends more often; sending an uplifting text at random times; writing old-fashioned snail mail; put on praise music as you run errands; memorize one new scripture each week; plus more.
Let’s also remember to receive messages of hope that are sent to us!
