Raise Your Children to be Missionaries for Jesus!

Singer on the SandWould you like to raise your children to become missionaries for Jesus? Read mission stories to them!

Some of my favorite mission story authors and their books are Norma Youngberg (Singer on the Sand, Nyla and the White Crocodile, Fire of the Mountain, Taught by a Tiger, Jungle Thorn), Eric B. Hare (Clever Queen, Treasure from the Haunted Pagoda), Josephine Cunnington Edwards (Kamwendo, The Enchanted Pillowcase) and Dookie, Sookie and Big Mo by Alice Mertie Underhill.

Also, in your family worship, why not pray for unreached people of the world. Check out the Joshua Project for ideas and people groups.

  1. I read most of those books (and many other mission stories) when I was young and they had a profound influence on me.
    One other dimension worth considering is audio stories. When I was young, my brother and I listened to lots of 45-RPM records containing Eric B. Hare stories (which are now available on CD). My brother, Steve Severance, later recorded a series of kids’ CDs in the style of Eric B. Hare. One of them, Secret Cargo, is on mission featuring modern-day stories.
