PROJECT: Children's Missions Project Kids from TEAM TEAM's Mozambique Kids Missions Project Kit material is excellent! Ardie Johnson, former missionary to Sough Africa, said. Even the adults sat spellbound as I presented the project kit idea to my church. We then used it for the combined children's Sunday school. The adults wanted to know when the next lesson would be so they could sneak into the back of the kids' class to listen!
Having lived in Africa, I know the stories are real and are just as presented in the material. In the kit, there are excellent illustrations for salvation, and visual tools include the flag of the country, an inflatable world globe, etc. It is some of the best missionary story materials I have ever used.
This is just one of four TEAM missions project kits that highlight a financial project for preschool and elementary-age children and provide a variety of educational tools for the teacher. The project and learning modules are appropriate for VBS, Sunday school, weekday clubs, camp programs, homeschoolers, or other children's programs.
While learning about the country and its spiritual needs, children will be challenged to give in order to
For a more detailed description of the project kits, go to www.TEAMworld.org. Operation World-Outside of the Bible this is possibly the most important book for Christians to have.

REVIEW From: <KIDSCAN@aol.com> There is no guarantee that what will work with one group of children will work with another. There are many variables. Kids Can Make a Difference evaluates materials before we recommend them and whenever possible we ask questions to determine what they really need. Some items to check when evaluating materials: the date published, the type of activities (paper and pencil, coloring are low on kids' lists), how the material is to be presented. You can have a lot of information but if the teacher is not given creative ways to present the material, you can forget it. Ask questions about the children. Have they been prepared with missions thinking? Some kids have been well taught and are moving beyond the simulated airplane ride. You can always refer them to us for more in-depth help. We also provide a guarantee on our materials, if it isn't what they wanted after they get it they can return for a refund.
