Getting kids interested in missions isn’t always easy. They are usually more focused on sports, TV, video games, or just being a kid. But one classic way to get them more interested in something is to tell them about other kids. Stories about people their own age are definitely more exciting to them than the boring world of adults. So, to get kids more excited about missions, why not tell them how they can help people their own age?
WGM’s Kids Helping Kids version of The Great Co-Mission Catalog is geared toward kids ages 7-12. Like the original catalog, it lists specific mission projects that people can donate to or help raise money for. However, this version shows kids what projects they can get involved with to help other children around the world. Many of the neediest people in the world are children.
Kids Helping Kids will help them pick what project they want to support by letting them read about different needs from WGM mission fields around the world. The catalog will also give them ideas about how to promote their project, including how to make a safe, easy webpage that will allow people to donate to their cause.
Even kids want to make a difference, and they don’t like to be told they can’t do things. Some very inspirational and successful charities and service projects have been started by kids. This catalog will give them a chance to see the needs of other kids in different cultures, kids they have the opportunity and the ability to help.
Encourage your own kids or children from your church or community to get involved with missions! Start by providing them with a copy of the Kids Helping Kids Great Co-Mission Catalog. You can download a copy of this document here. (You will need Acrobat Reader to view and print this file).
Look through the catalog with your kids, and let them decide what projects they might be interested in. If they choose to tackle a project, let them know you will help them. Pray with your kids about the project and for the people you will be helping. You can also visit WGM’s original The Great Co-Mission Catalog online at www.wgm.org/catalog.
