Hi Susan. This is an older book that is no longer on the Wycliffe website, but you can get it cheap on Amazon. Here’s the direct link for ordering:
Love this book. I used it as an introduction to a giving project. We acted out the story and talked about all the ways animals like chickens and goats help families in poverty. I showed the children catalog pages from organizations like World Vision and Samaritan’s Purse and we voted on which ones to purchase. The we brainstormed ways we could raise the money, both individually and as a group. So fun!
This book made me realize how raising kids to embrace God’s heart and purposes in the US is counter-cultural. Great perspective on how the family’s role and the local church’s role should complement each other.
One of my favorite tools for teaching kids to pray for the unreached. We put these cards in a basket on the table at dinnertime and let the kids choose one child to pray for before we eat.
Tajik Kids is an awesome video that will give your kids an up close and personal look at the Tajiks, the people group featured in this month’s Connect story. We used this with the kids at my church and also tried out some of the activities.
