We got a lot of traffic to our blog when I posted “Now... Where Are You Going?” I decided to follow it up with a post about our responsibilities as we enter this new season.
There are many pictures that come to mind when I say that we are missionaries. I thought would help form a picture of what we will be doing once on the field. If you’re heart is stirred after reading this, get involved by praying for us or giving financially:
- Presenting the gospel to children all over the world - this could mean thousands at a time at School Assemblies, Kids Crusades, Kids Camps and Open Air Outreaches.
- Training Children’s Leaders so quality Children’s Ministry can continue in their own countries. In this way there can be a greater impact on the children of the world.
- Speaking for those who cannot speak for themselves by advocating for and helping to meet the critical needs of children all over the world (water wells, feeding programs, school supplies, etc).
- Developing and presenting Anti-Drug and Character Building School Assemblies that will allow us access into closed countries. Along with the Assembly programs we will be writing follow-up classroom curriculum and teacher training so Ant-Drug and Character Building can continue.
- Resourcing the Local Children’s Ministry Leaders in countries all over the world. There’s a need for curriculum, supplies, puppets and teaching visuals. In some cases we will help find local resources that can be used, in other cases we will help get resources to them that can be redeveloped... and still in other cases, we may need to develop brand new resources.
- Redeveloping, writing, recording and producing new television episodes of Rainbow Surprise: A television show for children and families that is already seen in millions of homes around the globe - the new format and production will get it on on the air in many more new markets.
- Writing Workshop Sessions that will be used by children’s leaders from the US that desire to go on missions trips that include and involve teaching training on the field. These sessions will help the presenter communicate in a way that is relevant to the culture they’re ministering in.
- Writing Children’s Ministry Programs that will be used by children’s leaders from the US that desire to go on missions trips that include and involve children’s outreach programs and services while on the field. These programs will help the presenter communicate in a way that is relevant to the culture they’re ministering in.
So... that's what we're doing.
