Covers what missions is like in different areas of the world--complete with videos for each week!

I think that the personality and mission knowledge of the teacher would be important to making this curriculum come alive.

"10/40 Window Video for Children" “Prayer and Fasting for Kids” and
"Prayerwalking for Kids"
Joey and Fawn Parish, 540 W. Highland Dr., Camarillo, CA 93010 or email . This video exposes children to the 10/40 Window at their level. REVIEW From: NateWilson@XC.org I've seen the Parrish's videos (10/40 window for Children and Prayerwalking for Kids) and was amazed at how sharp and professional they looked--I was proud to see that Christians could put out graphics a good as anything MTV or Nickelodeon ever did! The Prayerwalking one, however, seemed really strange to me until I figured out why--there were no words on the screen because it's for children, who may be too young to read, and the video shots were from a kids-eye view--Brilliant!

VIDEO: All The
Dan & Pauline Sutton, 301 Redwood St., Birmingham, AL 35210
REVIEW From: NateWilson@XC.org I remember watching the Sutton's videos at camp many years ago and really liking them, but they may be a little slow-moving for older kids.
I just watched this video last week. It's for YOUNG children, but is very well-produced. It tells about the life of the Quetchua Indians, clearly communicating concepts regarding Bible translation and literacy. It's about 15 minutes long and is sub-divided into several shorter segments. Although Mission To The World produced it, the video does not promote any particular missionary or agency. Write MTW for more information: P.O. Box 29765, Atlanta, GA 30359.
