Teaching Preschoolers about Hunger

Teaching Preschoolers about Hunger

During October, Southern Baptists will turn our attention toward Global Hunger Relief. Unfortunately, hunger is an issue that touches every community throughout the world. While we would never share graphic details about hunger with our preschoolers, we can certainly raise their awareness that people in their own communities and around the world do not have enough to eat, and that we want to reach out to help those who suffer from hunger.

One resource that will help you develop age-appropriate learning about hunger is Teaching Preschoolers about Hunger (E118102, $9.99). This downloadable, interactive, 4-session study provides teachers, preschoolers, and their families new insights into the issue of global hunger.

The following suggestions will give you some ideas for adding lessons on hunger relief into your church’s schedule:

Wisdom-Martin elected executive director of WMU, SBC

(BIRMINGHAM, Ala.) -- Sandra Wisdom-Martin, executive director of WMU of Texas, was unanimously elected executive director/treasurer of Woman’s Missionary Union, SBC, by the WMU executive board during a special called meeting, July 29-30, in Birmingham, Ala.

Wisdom-Martin succeeds Wanda Lee, who has served as executive director of the 128-year-old missions organization for the past 16 years. Wisdom-Martin, who will begin her new role on Oct. 15, was presented to the board by a search committee appointed in February following Lee’s announcement of her intentions to retire.

Prior to leading WMU of Texas since 2010, Wisdom-Martin served as women’s missions and ministries director for the Illinois Baptist State Association, 2001-2010; and as Cooperative Program Missionary with the Arkansas Baptist State Convention, 1991-2001.
