LOVE the signs! This grew into quite an empowering ministry for kids and adults. My sister and I have taught HUNDREDS of people over the past few years, even in Mexico and El Salvador!

These were absolutely
amazing! I probably could have named four of the commandments prior to
preparing for this lesson for our kindergarteners, and now both my
daughter and I can go through all ten!

I want you to know how
much fun I had with the 10 commandment signs on my trip to Central
America. The first week my sister and I gave instructions on basic
ideas for Children's ministry in 4 churches and also spoke in a
Christian school. The kids in the high school really took to the
commandment help, as did the ministry leaders we spoke to in some of
the churches. Also a Jr. church in one of the churches learned very
quickly through this method.
My favorite was at the end of week 2 when we introduced it to the
ex-gang guys that have formed a group called, Los Discipulos. They are
break-dancers and use that venue to get kids to open up to them - then
give their testimonies and lead people to Christ. They go places
others dare not venture and the guys are very effective. They also
have been returning to areas and leading small Bible Studies and
minister to younger kids as well...I taught them the 10 commandments.
They LOVED IT! The more I reviewed, the better they got and the more
they wanted to review it again! Even a boy on our team, 19 years old
and a student at Purdue University here in Indiana, joined in with the
guys and learned the 10 commandments. The next day, I didn't go with
them, but they all worked together painting at an orphanage. The
Purdue boy said the gang and he kept challenging each other all day
through the 10 commandments review - just calling out a number to see
who could remember it first. That was such a blessing to hear. The
guys from the gang said this would not only help them teach the kids
the commandments, but also help them show the older teens how they can
see clearly that they are sinners in need of a Savior.

We used the Look n'
Learn technique last Fall. When we reviewed them a semester later, the
kids remembered every one of them!
