Teaching in the Interest Areas

Classroom

Do you remember the show where a design team did makeovers of entire houses? Wouldn’t it be dreamy if there was a show for Extreme Mission Friends Classroom Makeovers? You would have to send a video showing your current Mission Friends classroom, and an early childhood design team would come to re-make it into an awesome space. They would set up all the interest areas in a way that preschoolers thrive in learning about missions. Imagine your tears of joy at the big reveal at the end of the show. All you could repeat saying is, “Wow!”

For Preschool Leaders

Why begin missions education in the preschool years? Because the significance of a strong foundation based on biblical truths cannot be overestimated. It's important to learn about God and His love for all people at a young age.

By All Means

Linda Cooper

She is a petite woman who wears the cutest shoes, so how did she come to share about Jesus with a big rig truck driver? Linda Cooper, national WMU president, tells the most amazing stories about opportunities she has had in sharing the gospel with others. Once on a flight home from an overseas missions trip, a refugee family sat next to her on the plane. They were coming to the United States to be resettled. Though they spoke no English, by the end of the flight Linda had befriended them and they understood that she knew Jesus. Another time as she parked her car and started into the dental office where she works as a dental hygienist, she noticed a semi-truck was broken down in the parking lot. She spoke to the driver to offer help, though she did not know what she could possibly do to help out. Through their conversations that day, she shared the gospel with the driver and told him about Jesus’ love.
