Lent, the period between Ash Wednesday and Easter Sunday, Lentis a great time to make our little people aware of how children live around the world. We purchased some books to share with our little people to later place in our church’s library and we are handing out a penny donation lenten calendar to our families beginning this Sunday.

This is the calendar…printed on a word document. We chose a global ministry as the recipient found on the Advance UMC website that relates to children.

Making a World of Difference this Easter
Children in the USA live very different lives from those living in other countries around the world. Take this Lenten challenge to think about how your life is different from a little child born in another country. The money that you donate will go to help the Brighter Future Children Rescue Center in Liberia, Africa

These are the books we ordered to share with our students….

WhereChildrenSleepALifeLikeMine

And we are using Easter Sunday to hold a one-room-Sunday School for all our students and inviting a young missionary to share with us her experiences serving the Lord on mission trips out of the country. We plan to follow up with a monthly missionary visitor to come to various KidMin programming events for 2013 to keep our kids mindful that we are to “Go into all the world and preach the good news to all creation” Mark 16:15

If you’d like me to email you a copy of the Word calendar document, just send me an email at dedereilly@comcast.net and I’ll get it right out to you.
