PROJECT: Children's Missions Project Kids from TEAM
TEAM's Mozambique Kids Missions Project Kit material is excellent! Ardie
Johnson, former missionary to Sough Africa, said. Even the adults sat
spellbound as I presented the project kit idea to my church. We then used it
for the combined children's Sunday school. The adults wanted to know when
the next lesson would be so they could sneak into the back of the kids'
class to listen!
Having lived in Africa, I know the stories are real and are just as
presented in the material. In the kit, there are excellent illustrations for
salvation, and visual tools include the flag of the country, an inflatable
world globe, etc. It is some of the best missionary story materials I have
This is just one of four TEAM missions project kits that highlight a
financial project for preschool and elementary-age children and provide a
variety of educational tools for the teacher. The project and learning
modules are appropriate for VBS, Sunday school, weekday clubs, camp
programs, homeschoolers, or other children's programs.
While learning about the country and its spiritual needs, children will be
challenged to give in order to
- equip a Sunday school room in Peru.
- establish a children's video library with VeggieTales videos in a Japanese
church, or send a Japanese child to camp.
- outfit a traveling children's team in Mozambique with puppets, a tape
- provide sports and computer equipment for an after-school club in Spain.
For a more detailed description of the project kits, go to
Operation World-Outside of the Bible this is possibly the most important
book for Christians to have. Operation World compiled by Patrick
Johnstone has a vast amount of information about every country on earth.
It is also a daily prayer guide for Christians to use in identifying the
needs of the people groups who have churches among them and those who do
not. To order a copy at a discounted price, or several copies at a
wholesale price call 1-800-MISSION.

In the KidsCan Network Catalog you will find up-to-date resources for reading, games, activities, music, drama, and teaching curriculum (i?). REVIEW From: <KIDSCAN@aol.com> There is no guarantee that what will work with one group of children will work with another. There are many variables. Kids Can Make a Difference evaluates materials before we recommend them and whenever possible we ask questions to determine what they really need. Some items to check when evaluating materials: the date published, the type of activities (paper and pencil, coloring are low on kids' lists), how the material is to be presented. You can have a lot of information but if the teacher is not given creative ways to present the material, you can forget it. Ask questions about the children. Have they been prepared with missions thinking? Some kids have been well taught and are moving beyond the simulated airplane ride. You can always refer them to us for more in-depth help. We also provide a guarantee on our materials, if it isn't what they wanted after they get it they can return for a refund.
