Families on Mission

Sharing God's love together is sure to ignite a lifelong passion for missions in your family! Use these resources at home to reinforce what preschoolers are learning at church. Talking about and praying for missionaries will spark creative ideas for helping others in your own community.  

WMU has developed resources that can help your family reach out to others.

Where Do the Animals Live?

Print out the page. Guide your child to draw a line from the animal to its habitat. You can search for "Guatemala wildlife facts" online to find out more about these animals and others in Guatemala.

Say: Look at the wonderful things God made (see Job 37:14). These animals live in Guatemala where Mr. and Mrs. White are missionaries.

Print the activity page. Lead your child to draw a line to connect the churches that match. Talk about which picture most closely resembles your church. Point out that people go to different kinds of buildings for church. For older preschoolers, explain that a church is more than just a building. It is people who love, obey, and worship God.
