Sending Hope

There were windows all across the front of our building. I could watch as their car approached. When it was parked, Wendy would retrieve the wheelchair from the trunk and place it as close to the passenger door as possible. After opening the door, she would position the chair and set the brakes.

Myself

I'm here!

“I’m here!” One of my preschoolers says this nearly every week when he comes in our Mission Friends room. It is his way of saying, “Look at me! Acknowledge who I am!” All preschoolers want to be noticed and accepted. As preschool teachers, we can help preschoolers know they are special to God, and that makes them important.

Asking Questions

Asking questions

“What does this do?” I asked as I pulled a wrench out of a bag at Group Time in Mission Friends. Our mission story last week was about the Cases and volunteers who helped people rebuild their homes after a fire. I had some tools in a bag, and we had already talked about the hammer and hacksaw. “It turns things,” said Atsu, who is 4 years old. He started moving his arms up and down, and said, “It turns things you have to hold.”

It was evident from his words and motions that Atsu had seen a wrench being used before. In answering the question, he was recalling or remembering how he had seen a wrench being used. He showed his understanding about the tool as he explained how it is used and acted this out with his arm movements.

“Go Tell,” and they did!

A picture is truly worth a thousand words! On Saturday, thousands of children in grades 1–6 participated in national WMU-sponsored Children’s Missions Day. Children from all over the nation participated in hands-on ministry.
