Multiply by Dividing

Multiply by dividing

Do you remember learning the multiplication tables? Ugh! I was never good at memorizing and never good with numbers, so learning the multiplication tables was quite a task for me as a child. I liked geometry, but not doing math that is multiplication, division, addition, and subtraction.

Knowing God More

knowing God

The word know is defined as being aware of something, as well as to have an understanding of something. Even better, the word know includes the idea of having experience of something.

Update from Derrick and Barbara Pennon and Refugee Work

Bibles for Refugees

Derrick and Barbara Pennon report that refugee believers they have trained are reaching new refugees as they arrive at entry points in their country. Sometimes entire families are becoming believers. "God is at work among the refugees in these islands!"

Unshakable Pursuit

Living Nativity

Mary’s robe was a little lopsided, and she giggled as the sheep next to her nudged her leg. Joseph sat on a hay bale, or rather squirmed on a hay bale. Three dads stood behind Mary and Joseph, and I supposed they were the wise men. A goat stood at the side, eating the grass of our church lawn. Each year my church puts on a live Nativity on the evening of our choir’s Christmas program. Grown-ups and children portray the parts of the characters. The scene is complete with real, live animals. It makes a picture for people to stop and view for a few minutes before they step inside the church building for the choir program. Last year one of my Mission Friends was Mary, and she smiled and waved to me from the scene. Each year, there is always something that makes me think about the events of the real Christmas story. Last year, I wondered if Mary was an outgoing young woman who waved to people she knew as they passed by the stable.

Unshakable Pursuit

Pursuing God in prayer

I woke up in the morning with the hymn “More Love to Thee, O Christ” running through my head. The song is such a sweet prayer to God, and is one of desiring more devotion to God.

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.

A Grown-up Mission Friend

a heart for missions

A young man sat down on the bench in the WMU booth at the Southern Baptist Convention in Dallas last month. He proceeded to say that he wanted to thank WMU, and how WMU had been an influence in his life. I thought in the back of my mind that he looked vaguely familiar. When I saw West Virginia listed on his name tag, I knew immediately who he was: Nathan!

Do I know you? Meet the New Preschool Editor

Julie Heath

I’ve answered this question and asked this question quite a few times in my life. Do I know you? You look familiar. Have we met yet/before? Preschoolers don’t always ask those questions. Depending on just where they are in their preschool life, some preschoolers will just sit down and start to play—if you have toys, you are my friend. So, I’m going to start and assume, if we could get together around a large cherry diet Dr Pepper with easy ice and (insert your favorite coffee/soda here), we would be good friends and be able to find something in common—if you love preschoolers, you are my friend.

Finding Your Rest

Study Scripture

Leading preschoolers to understand more of God is a daunting task. It can be fun! But it can also be exhausting. Where do they get all that energy from? It can be challenging to say the least.
