Following are sources of information that have proved helpful in preparing programs for Children’s Mission. You may want to order these for your own Sabbath School.
Visit our website for additional photos, recipes, language pages, puzzles, and other activities that you can download and print to make mission more fun for children. Go to www.AdventistMission.org. Click on “Resources,” then “Children’s Mission” in the drop-down menu. Go to the current quarter and select the “activities” from the menu.
Adventist Mission DVD is a free video that features stories from the featured countries as well as the worldwide mission of the church. Ask your Sabbath School superintendent to make you a copy of it. Or go online at MissionDVD.org to download one of the DVD programs.
For more information: Search on the Internet for information on individual countries by name. Or ask a local travel agency for any colorful brochures on tourist destinations in eastern Africa to help you portray the scenery and culture.
Offering device: Use a colorful woven basket for the offering this quarter. If you don’t have one, check local thrift stores or neighborhood yard sales to find one. Remind children that their weekly mission offering and 75 percent of the Thirteenth Sabbath Offering helps the church around the world to tell people about Jesus. The remainder of the Thirteenth Sabbath Offering will go directly to the special projects listed on the back cover of the quarterly.
