This quarter features the Northern Asia-Pacific Division, which includes the countries of China, Japan, Korea, Mongolia, and Taiwan. Almost 1.6 billion people live in this region, of which fewer than 650,000 are Seventh-day Adventists. That means that about one person out of every 2,440 is an Adventist.
This year marks the centennial of the mission quarterlies, which were first produced in 1912. Throughout the year we will feature at least one story that appeared in Children’s Mission over the years, and some additional stories relating to the history of the mission offerings. Look for these special features each quarter.
The special children’s project will help provide programming for children in the Chinese language. Photocopy or draw a simple map of the world. Place a drawing or picture of a video camera, a microphone, or a computer in Northern Asia-Pacific. Each week that you reach your predetermined offering goal, draw a “sound wave” (an arc that flows out from the camera or computer) that by the end of the quarter will extend across the map.
Yours in His service,
Editor, Children's Mission
