This quarter features the Southern Asia Division, which includes the countries of Bhutan, India, and Nepal, plus the islands of the Maldives.
The Adventist Church in the Southern Asia Division has grown dramatically in the past 16 years, from a membership of just under 200,000 to more than 1.4 million today. That's a ratio of one Adventist for every 820 people. Much of the growth can be attributed to outreach initiatives such as Global Mission. But the foundation for growth was laid as Adventist schools were established throughout India. Thousands have been baptized while studying in Adventist schools. And many more thousands who were not baptized have been influenced by the Christian values they were introduced to while in school.
Songs and words in several languages of the Southern Asia Division are featured throughout the quarterly and on our website, www.AdventistMission.org. Click on "Resources" and "Children's Activities."
Draw a classroom on poster board. Draw simple tables and benches to add to the classroom as your class reaches its quarterly mission offering goal. (Determine your goal and divide it by 13.) Or use stickers of children as goal indicators.
Yours for the kingdom,
Editor, Children's Mission
