3) Summer Ideas: Voice of the Martyrs
Last year we were able to purchase from
Voice of the Martyr's one of their children's Bold Believer's material on Iran ( they have many countries to choose from).
You can copy all the material, they don't copy right it so the church can use it more freely.
We set up one room as a view from outer space, with stars, planets, galaxies, and to show the children how God planned it all out from the beginning of time. He knew we would use
outer space for communications and satellites. and that is how most Iranians are converted to Christianity.
We also set up a sand box, in a near by garage, where they could try to build houses, and see the difference of working with sand vs building on a rock.
We had a story each week of children who were willing to share their faith with
We had memory verses to match the stories.
We had maps to show us how to get there from here. And how the Bible show us how to get from here to Heaven.
We learned what their culture was like.
We learned the character of God and what He is like.
We learned what their greatest needs are, so we can pray for them.
We also learned we are never too young to share our faith.
Some of the elementary students were so excited about what was happening there, they passionately began sharing their faith with their family, Grandparents, aunts and uncles, cousins and
friends. It was amazing to hear the feed back. It was exciting to see them so excited.
We did it as a whole group, combining the classes, and the older children helping the younger, it works great.
This year the LORD willing we are going to set up, Pilgrim's
Progress, and the place he visited.
