I understand that they are being teased because of their faith but here is a few verses of encouragement. Matthew 5:10-12 10Blessed are those who are persecuted because of righteousness,for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. John 15:18-20 11"Blessed are you when people insult you, persecute you and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of me. 12Rejoice and be glad, because great is your reward in heaven, for in the same way they persecuted the prophets who were before you. John 16:33 33"I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world." Here is a few more of them: 2 Corinthians 4:8-11, 2 Corinthians 12:10, 2 Timothy 3:12, and 1 Peter 4:12-14,16 They have been and still can make a difference for Christ.
