Paul’s Missionary Journeys

This man is my chosen instrument to proclaim my name to the Gentiles and their kings and to the people of Israel. I will show him how much he must suffer for my name.

Currently this series takes you through the first two of Paul’s Missionary Journeys (It was a short term). For each week there’s a half hour study and a card to fill in. The card isn’t strictly necessary but it helped our teens to focus: I would ask them for what each person or place would be famous for and get three answers as a group which everyone would write down. The catchphrase would be something that person (or people living in the place) would be likely to say and each child would write their own – although we made it clear using someone else’s idea was fine, it meant that you thought their idea was great!
