Good day from the islands! As we write this our children's expansion is going well and right on track. The new area is wide open and will be a blessing to many children here in the Marshall Islands.
This Friday night we will be reaching out to the neighborhood with a showing of the Jesus film in Marshallese. We are praying that many youth and children will come and see the movie.
We are currently using a older curriculum by Mark Harper to teach the children. It is awesome and really works well here in the islands. However, we are coming to the end of the series and it is really time to replace it. Shawn and Edna (our children's director), have tried several different but none of them really fit for here. The newer curriculum has a lot of media and the stories do not work with the kids here.
We need a curriculum that is Word based and adapting to our field here. This morning we wanted ask all of you for suggestions for another curriculum. We know that other missionaries read our blog and many in children's leadership as well we would appreciate your input.
If you have something that your church is no longer using maybe an older version of Mark Harper or Willie George's series let us know. We are open to anything that will help us teach the children here in the islands. If you have any suggestions or input please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you so much for your faithful prayers and support!
Running with the Vision,
Steve, Shawn, Richard, Stephen, Terina, Kanani and Stephen III
