10 Ways to Help Kids Love Missions notes:

"There are things we can do to help our kids love the nations and the cause of Christ, even though a heart and calling for the Great Commission is ultimately something only God can grant. Here are a few ideas from Ryan and Anna, who are currently preparing to serve in Asia with their two young daughters".

1. Pray for missionaries as a family.

2. Read missionary biographies to your children. The stories of Hudson Taylor, Adoniram Judson, William Carey, Gladys Aylward, and other missionary pioneers

3. Draw the whole family into supporting missionaries financially.

4. Find your child a missionary kid pen pal.

5. Entertain missionaries in your home.

6. Take risks as a family.

7. Affirm and nurture qualities in your children which could serve them on the mission field.

8. Teach your children to be world Christians.

9. Read missionary prayer letters to your children.

10. Use missions fact books and resources such as Operation World, the Global Prayer Digest, the Joshua Project, and Voice of the Martyrs (VOM). Kids of Courage
