Asia: Its People and History

Asia: Its People and History

Is the land of Asia a mystery to your kids? Do they know who lives there? Do they know how to pray for them? Asia is home to more than fifty countries and territories and roughly three-fifths of the world’s population. Could you use some help introducing your family to this vast land? This sixteen-week course presents a brief picture of six nations. It is by no means all encompassing. Its purpose is to introduce your students to the people of Asia, share their stories, and spark curiosity.

I pray that the course does much more than that, however. I pray that through meeting just a few of our brothers and sisters who live in cities and villages with names that are hard to pronounce that your children feel more connected with those who are suffering for their faith in Christ. Through stories and activities, we’ll meet the people of Laos, Bangladesh, Nepal, China, Iran, and Vietnam. We’ll get to know the children of these lands and hear about their experiences. Most of all, we’ll pray for them and their families. Won’t you join us?

Nourishing Butter Whip

From Adia: I started to make this creamy concoction because I wanted my hair to retain moisture and get lots of healthy nutrients besides what I was putting direct into my body. After perusing some vlogs, I was able to come up with something that works for my hair (which is very thick I might add). I have used it as a leave-in conditioner, and currently I use it mostly as a moisture sealant. I have been making this product for a couple of years now for personal use and after other people saw my hair growth results many encouraged me to sell this wonderful whip. I have also used it on my skin especially while I was pregnant to keep my belly soft and supple. I have used it on my face(a very little goes a long way). Lastly, I have used it on my son as a light diaper cream (of course, you would want to watch for allergic reactions).
