I have always been fascinated while reading missionary stories.
And I adore sharing them with my children.
We have been traveling with Gladys Aylward through China this week. All my 6 children and I snuggle on my bed after lunch to discover how God’s provision affected her couarageous life working for the King. The little ones color these FREE color pages to help them stay focused during our reading time. All of us are in awe of God’s almighty plan for this faithful servant. These true stories have encouraged us all to step out of our confort zone to spread His Holy Word to the lost.
Many of our favorite missionary stories like Gladys Aylward are from the Christian Hero Series: Then & Now by YWAM Publishing. I have been reading these entertaining and challenging books for years during our read a louds to my family. We have adored them all.
We have been currently reading through the Christian Hero Series: 5 Book Set (Books 1-5).
- Gladys Aylward: The Adventure of a Lifetime
- Nate Saint: On a Wing and a Prayer
- Hudson Taylor: Deep in the Heart of China
- Amy Carmichael: Rescuer of Precious Gems
- Corrie ten Boom: Keeper of Angels’ Den
All of the books in Christian Hero Series will have you and your children on the edge of their seats begging for you to finish the book at once. They are fast-paced, adventurous, and extremly inspirational for the whole family. I actually read Corrie Ten Boom years ago to myself and immediately read it again to my children. It began in us all a passion for missions and a greater understanding of WWII.
My older children have completed a book stody of one of the YMAM Publishing books during their Youth Sunday School class. These books always make great in depth conversations aroung the dinner table. We continue to refer back to the different missionaries we have grown to admire. We remember their deep faith when we are conversing about our own life challenges. My children all have been influenced by the lives of these righteous individuals and have recognized what it means to surrender on FAITH alone.
All of the missionaries have one thing in common…..Strong FAITH!
In most cases, that’s all they had.
You can purchase all of the Christian Hero Series: Then & Now as a set, gift set, or indvidually on the YWAM Publishers website. They make great gfts, too.
