From the editor — Summer is here and our kids need constructive activities to keep them busy and to improve their minds and relationship with Jesus.
Pass these on to your churches to distribute in a children's bulletin or church newsletter, and to share with parents children's leaders.
Suggest that kids can link to these websites on their own personal websites and blogspots.
—— ADVENTIST® STUFF FOR KIDS
■ RAISE MONEY FOR OTHER KIDS — Vacation Bible School “Castles and Crowns” kids are learning about the Navajo Nation and saving their coins to raise US$30,000 to replace a broken down well at La Vida Mission School near Farmington, New Mexico. So far this week, NAD Children’s Ministries has already received nearly US$4,900!
■ HELP ADVENTIST ELEMENTARY SCHOOL STUDENTS MEET THEIR GOAL to help 90 child-headed homes in South Africa, to provide them with food and needs for weekends. Hope for Humanity is helping with food and support during the week. So far they’ve raised US$70,000 toward their ultimate goal of US$85,000.
