Exploring Countries and Cultures( Week 1-4)

Whew! We have been having so much fun starting our journey back with My Father's World, so much so I have had a hard time finding time to update this blog!;-) I will try to sum it up in this one post...hehe;-)

We have been learning and discussing different country/people groups and how to best pray for them.

We have discussed different religions:

* Animism
* Buddhism
* Hindusim
* Isalm
* Judaism
* Christianity
and Missionary Kids

The kids also made poster of people from around the world to represent John 3:16 " For God so loved the WORLD that He gave His one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in Him will not perish but have eternal life"

We have also been reading about different Christian Heros:

Character Traits we learned from this Hero:

" Repentance is not just saying you're sorry for sin, but going in a new direction"

" Boldness in telling others about Jesus comes when you realize that asking Jesus to be your Savior can't always wait until "tommorow"

" Strength is the power God gives you to finish a job, even when you feel weak"

Character Traits we learned from this Hero:

" Compassion is bearing someone eles's burden as if it were your own"

"Joy is a gift from God, a taste of what it will be like in heaven"

" Perseverance is continuing to do what is right, even when you get tired or run into problems"

Since we will be taking a trip around the World this year, the kiddos had to apply for a "passport"

We learned SO MUCH about( Maps and Globes)- Alot of this was review for Morgan from last year..But Maddie and Mason benefited SO much from this review as they both now know all the continents and where they are located!:-)

In Science

We have been learning about...

* Environments
* Seasonal Changes
* Long-term Changes
* Cycles of Nature
* Plant Life
* Deserts
* Animal Life( oh yea we went there..hehe;-)

All of our Library Goodies!:-)

We have especially loved our Missonary Read Alouds! The kiddos love crawling in their hideout and listening about Cam and how God used him to bring His Word to the people of Mexico,Guatemala and Peru through Bible Translation!!:-)

AND now its time for me to go get packed and ready because.....
