Bible Curriculum

Last summer we asked for donations for Bible curriculum for the Christian schools.  We received several boxes of new Bible flashcards for the teachers to use as visuals.  We laminated them all so they will last as long as possible in the heat, humidity, and harmattan dust winds of our West African home of Togo.

When the schools were started, Bea Ward and her team of teacher-trainers worked grade by grade, starting with 1st grade.  And because 1st grade was the first to receive the Bible curriculum, theirs is the most used and in need of replacement.  With the opening of new schools and the constant use of old curriculum we're seeing the need to ship more out on a container to Togo this Summer.

Our partner, Christy, plugs away working with the Christian schools. One day as she observed classes, she heard the question of the day in 8th grade bible class: What good works are needed to g…
