Woman's Missionary Union has published a new book called, "Molly's Adventures in
Missions" for preschoolers and children. In the book Molly learns what
church mission teams do when they go on their trips. In the back of
the book is Molly to cut out, laminate, and send off with mission
teams. They take pictures of Molly helping them on their mission trip
and share their pictures when they come back. It's another way to help
preschoolers and children learn about missons. Books can be purchased
through WMU at www.WMUstore.com for $8.99.
I think it would be GREAT if church librarians would buy the book to
put in their library. Then send Molly off with their church mission
teams. They could ask the teams to make some duplicate copies of their
pictures and with Molly too. Ask them to make a scrapbook of their
mission trip using Molly with stories and what is happening in the
pictures. The scrapbooks could be put in the library to be shared
and/or be checked out by individuals like a regular book. The goal is
that lots of people of all ages can learn about their mission trips,
there would be a record of their mission trip for future generations,
and even parents could share the book at home with their
preschooler/children to teach them about the church mission trips.
Plus, Mission Friends, GAs, Ra's, Sunday School classses, and other
groups could use them in their classes. They could be introduced to
Molly through her book, "Molly's Adventures in Missions. "
