When I refer to missions I refer to being salt and light. We’re called to be salt and light everywhere, not just overseas. I have found that especially when it comes to kids the idea of missions seems very distant and removed from where they are at. When we explain salt and light and what that means they seem to get it and it resonates with them.
I’m privileged to be a part of a church that is not huge but is definitely mighty. We have a number of people being salt and light where God has called them. The kids know them and when they are in town we have them talk with the kids. One way we remember to keep them in our prayers is we have their picture up in every single one of our #kidmin rooms. We pray for them, talk to them, love on them, and thank God for how they are being salt and light. These are terrible phone pictures but I think you get the point. Just an idea for how you con promote missions (salt and light) with your kiddos.
