A missionary mom serving in Australia overheard her young son and daughter talking with their 7-year-old neighborhood friend, Eden. The children first asked Eden if her dad was a Christian. She told them he didn’t believe in God. They then asked her if she knew about the Garden of Eden, as her name is Eden. She thought she’d heard of it. The missionary’s son then took out the Big Picture Story Bible and began to read her the Creation story. (He had just read it during family worship the night before.) The missionary’s daughter then told her brother that he should probably read a story about the cross, so they moved to the New Testament and read Eden the story about Jesus' crucifixion.
When the missionary asked her daughter about it later, she said that she thought Eden needed to hear about the cross if the Creation story was to really make sense. How encouraging this was to the mother! Without even being conscious of it, missionary kids are helping reach their communities for Christ. God uses your support in ways beyond our imagination.
