Students Fulfilling The Mission To Impact Their World For The King Of Kings

Seventh grade students in history class at The King’s Academy are making an impact in their world.  They recently worked with Voice of the Martyrs to help bring the gospel to guerillas in the jungles of Colombia. They made parachutes that will be used to deliver Christian literature, Bibles, and solar-powered radios by a missionary pilot.  The students made the parachutes from start to finish, from cutting out the pattern to sewing on the cords. They also donated money to help offset the cost of fuel and materials.

“This project was a great tie in to our study of Latin America, making it real to the students. We were happy to partner with courageous Christians to bring the message of peace to guerilla-controlled regions” commented Mrs. Smythe.
