Put Feet to Their Faith With a Project to Bring God's Word to the Mwinika People in Mozambique!

For the past month I've been sharing a project you could involve the children in your ministry in to help bring God's Word to the Mwinika people in Mozambique. "More than 200,000 Mwinika people live in Mozambique. A team of NTM missionaries has begun teaching evangelistic Bible lessons and church-planting but lacks necessary funds to move forward with Scripture translation. The missionary team has prepared the groundwork for translating the Scriptures into the Mwinika language. The translation project will extend over the next 15 years including printing of the Old and New Testaments and continuing translation and literacy preparation work. You can be a part of reaching the Mwinika people with the Gospel of grace. Helping to fund the translation project will ensure that further generations of Mwinika people will be able to read the Scriptures and grow in the knowledge of God through your provision."

You can involve your kids in this project by helping them raise money to send to New Tribes Mission for this project. Consider the following ideas for raising money . . . 
  • have children make bookmarks with their favorite Bible verses and then sell them and give the money to this project - you could print the verse in a different language, such as Russian - 16Ибо так возлюбил Бог мир, что отдал Сына Своего Единородного, дабы всякий верующий в Него, не погиб, но имел жизнь вечную. - and then have the kids write it in English.
  • have the children make pictures showing people learning God's Word, make your own "art gallery" and then have a "showing" where people can "bid" on the art work. Donate the money raised to this project.
  • involve the children in learning verses and Bible praise songs and put together a "show". Sell tickets and donate the money raised to this project.
These are just a few ideas . . . what can you think of to help your kids raise money for this project and "Put Feet to Their Faith"?
