"His Mercies Are New Every Morning"
“I pray because I can't help myself. I pray because I'm helpless. I pray because the need flows out of me all the time- waking and sleeping. It doesn't change God- it changes me.”
― C. S. Lewis

I believe in the sun even when it's not shining. I believe in love even when I don't feel it. And I believe in God even when He is silent. (quote found on the wall of a concentration camp)

This morning is our kickoff for Summer.... We will be studying Missions around the World. I'm excited about it. Our K-2 kids will be exploring Africa, Asia, South America and Philippines, visiting Missionaries and what they do in each of these countries, using a DVD program along with a study guide.. We have activities to go along with the program and I think they like it! :)
We will also add some other countries like Russia and Ukraine, as we know friends who live and work there as missionaries. :)
Today we learned about Mission Aviation Fellowship, and another family that moved to Africa to help existing churches implement Sunday School into their churches. The kids got to see animals from Africa, and some of the cultural differences.
I ordered Passports for each of them that look just like the ones above, and took their pictures today. When the passports arrive, I'll paste their pictures inside so they can have a pretend passport to stamp for each country we visit over the summer. :)
We also have a map on our wall and will be adding photos of the missionaries we talk about, and put a push pin into each country we visit.
