Unshakable Pursuit

Pursuing God in prayer

I woke up in the morning with the hymn “More Love to Thee, O Christ” running through my head. The song is such a sweet prayer to God, and is one of desiring more devotion to God.

Sometimes you just need more to do with Mission Friends. It might be that you meet 5 times a month and there are only 4 sessions in Mission Friends Leader, what do you do?

OOPS! We made a mistake!

In Mission Friends Leader, September Session 3 (pp. 17 and 18), we printed an incorrect link for a video about Christmas Backpacks.

Let’s Talk About Budgets

budget planning

I know you, because I’ve been there too. You’re the Mission Friends teacher who needs stickers for an activity suggested in Mission Friends Leader, and your session is today. You run in the discount store to buy the stickers on the way to church, but never turn in the receipt for the church to reimburse you. Or it may be that your church is struggling financially, and you take the responsibility on yourself to purchase items you need to teach Mission Friends. Many Mission Friends teachers purchase the supplies and curriculum materials themselves. There are many teachers who may not know what is included in their church’s budget for Mission Friends.

A Fun Fall Event

Start off the new church year in Mission Friends with a fun fall-themed enrollment event. Plan the event for preschoolers and their parents. Invite all preschoolers in your church. Encourage parents to invite neighbors and friends who have preschoolers.

Project HELP: Refugees

Project HELP: Refugees

A young mother. A new father. A baby boy. They must have been frightened as they fled during the night. Their biggest fear may have been that they could be found out if the baby cried while they escaped. We don’t know all the steps they took in getting to the border, but there must have been relief to realize they were safe from the cruel leader of the country from which they fled.

For Preschool Leaders

Why begin missions education in the preschool years? Because the significance of a strong foundation based on biblical truths cannot be overestimated. It's important to learn about God and His love for all people at a young age.

A Grown-up Mission Friend

a heart for missions

A young man sat down on the bench in the WMU booth at the Southern Baptist Convention in Dallas last month. He proceeded to say that he wanted to thank WMU, and how WMU had been an influence in his life. I thought in the back of my mind that he looked vaguely familiar. When I saw West Virginia listed on his name tag, I knew immediately who he was: Nathan!

Do I know you? Meet the New Preschool Editor

Julie Heath

I’ve answered this question and asked this question quite a few times in my life. Do I know you? You look familiar. Have we met yet/before? Preschoolers don’t always ask those questions. Depending on just where they are in their preschool life, some preschoolers will just sit down and start to play—if you have toys, you are my friend. So, I’m going to start and assume, if we could get together around a large cherry diet Dr Pepper with easy ice and (insert your favorite coffee/soda here), we would be good friends and be able to find something in common—if you love preschoolers, you are my friend.
