RA Missions Projects and Ideas

This section contains a list of missions projects and activities that boys can do with their RA group.

You can also encourage the boys to do them with their parents. Many of these activities can be done each year. Some should only be done every other year. A few should only be done once. As a leader, decide which missions projects and activities you and your group will consider.

Be sure to allow plenty of time for the boys to help plan and participate in the project, and celebrate working together as ambassadors for Christ. As a general rule of thumb, plan on completing one or two missions projects or activities every month, depending on the time of year and the size of the missions project.

Christmas in August

Every year in August, children's missions groups collect gifts for a select group of North American missionaries. These items help missionaries replenish ministry supplies, purchase items for ministry centers, and minister to people who need to hear about Jesus.

Does Christmas in August really make a difference? Yes, it does! Read testimonies from past Christmas in August recipients.

Pen Pals

Most children enjoy writing other Girls in Action, Royal Ambassadors, and Children in Action groups. WMU does not maintain a pen pal list, but leaders can exchange information on our Facebook pages as a way to find groups interested in earning the Pen Pals badge/patch.

Some children's groups also enjoy writing missionaries and missionary kids (MKs). Use these tips to ensure a fun experience for both your children and the MKs:

  • Write only to MKs whose postal or email addresses are listed in Children in Action LeaderGA LeaderRA Leader, GA World, or RA World. Because of security, we cannot provide contact information for some MKs.
  • Include a self-addressed, stamped envelope or postcard in each letter you send to an MK in the United States. Also, consider including your email address.
  • Do not ask or expect MKs to reply to your message. Many receive hundreds of letters and emails from children's groups!
  • Preview your children's messages before sending them to MKs. MKs' parents will also receive and review each message.
  • Do not email attachments or forward emails to MKs.
  • Spend time praying for each MK to whom you write.
