Caleb Project Videos for Children

Patna, India .Urban Malays .The Turks (6 minutes, VHS, 1998) .Future releases yet to come in the Kids Around The World Series

Caleb Project's first two Kids videos on Children in India and Malaysia are slide-transfer and thus don't compare to the graphic quality and action that you see on TV nowadays, but the CONTENT is very good, and there are very specific prayer requests. Their subsequent releases in the Kids Around the World series (Including the Turks and whatever's next) will be the quality of what kids see on TV nowadays. $12.00 + $7 S&H. Order through Caleb Project, 10 West Dry Creek Cir., Littleton, CO 80120 or <> Review from: NateWilson

Santosa's Story

I just watched this video last week. It's for YOUNG children, but is very well-produced. It tells about the life of the Quetchua Indians, clearly communicating concepts regarding Bible translation and literacy. It's about 15 minutes long and is sub-divided into several shorter segments. Although Mission To The World produced it, the video does not promote any particular missionary or agency. Write MTW for more information: P.O. Box 29765, Atlanta, GA 30359.

10/40 Window Video for Children and Prayerwalking for Kids

This video exposes children to the 10/40 Window at their level.

Concerts of Prayer Ventura County, has produced 2, six minute video's on the 10/40 Window that are being used across America by many different missions agencies and denominations. There is the 10/40 Window for Kids, and the 10/40 Window for Adults. ... They are $11 each (slow boat to China mailing) or $14 each priority mail.

In addition, Joey and Fawn have just completed Prayerwalking For Kids, a six-minute video, based on Steve Hawthorne's book. Narrated by kids, it teaches children how to pray for a target city.

Review from: NateWilson --- I've seen the Parrish's videos (10/40 window for Children and Prayerwalking for Kids) and was amazed at how sharp and professional they looked--I was proud to see that Christians could put out graphics a good as anything MTV or Nickelodeon ever did! The Prayerwalking one, however, seemed really strange to me until I figured out why--there were no words on the screen because it's for children, who may be too young to read, and the video shots were from a kids-eye view--Brilliant!
