Reaching Out to the Families of GAs

Girls in Action® leaders who share the work of missionaries contribute to the spiritual as well as educational development of children and youth. Here are some ways you can encourage the families of GAs to participate in missions learning on a regular basis. You might plan this as a quarterly activity to begin with, then evaluate later to determine if you’d like to offer this more often.

GA 100 Celebration Videos


At the WMU Missions Celebration this past June, missionaries, Acteens, and former GAs all spoke to the value of missions education for girls and how their experiences in GA and/or Acteens influenced their worldview and responsibility for being involved in missions. Check out these podcasts and videos to hear their stories.

January: The Jacques Avakian Story


• world map (paper or online)
• paper
• colored pencils

1. Direct your group to the world map. Point out these locations on the map: Armenia, Lebanon, Cyprus, and Montreal. If you are using an online map, perform a search for those places. Plot out the traveling distance from each location to your home.

January: The Lon Vining Story


• chalkboard and chalk, dry-erase board and dry-erase marker, or poster board and marker

1. Explain that you will name a place. The children should silently act out what they would do if they visited that place. For example, if you call out “swimming pool,” children will pretend to swim.

2. Call out these places: weight room, trampoline, jogging trail, basketball court, football field, soccer field, track, baseball field, hockey arena, tennis court, and dog park.

Author John Maxwell wrote, “Everything rises and falls on leadership.” I believe this is so true. In recent months, I have written From Missionary Ridge articles about 2015 being a year to focus on equipping missions leaders in the church. Through events in the Midwest and western regions and during the WMU® Missions Celebration and Annual Meeting this past June in Ohio, much attention was given through conferences to help missions leaders feel confident in their role of leading small groups of children, youth, or adults.
