Who knew our little church would be full of such well-traveled youngsters?
Armed with homemade passports and eager anticipation, our kids club has gone on a little adventure around the world in the last 6 weeks, on a great "Kid-Mission" if you will. We been exploring what it means to follow Christ's Great Commission to "19 [. . .] go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you." (Matthew 28:19-20)
In addition to studying the growth of the early church in the book of Acts, we've also been exposed to a different culture, country, or people group each week. Our group of children is quite eclectic and culturally diverse, so often an individual is able to present information about his or her own home culture.
Papua New Guinea, Mexico, Tonga, Guatemala and Brazil have made it on to the itinerary so far. Where to next? China? New Zealand? America? . . .
