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.

Helping Hands

Bill and Arlene Barker are missionaries who help poor families through the Appalachian Mountain Ministry. Mr. Barker travels the area to help churches and volunteers minister to families in different ways. Mrs. Barker works and keeps their home going while Mr. Barker travels.

The Barkers show God’s love by meeting the needs of families and telling them about Jesus. Pray for the Barkers as they love others.
