Window on the World

Are you too young to be a mission worker in another country? Maybe not! A VOM worker said, “You can be an international missions worker without ever leaving your knees. A Christian leader in Vietnam told me, ‘When you pray in America, you are working in Vietnam.’”

Window on the World is a book that can help you pray for people in other countries.

Window on the World is a valuable resource to guide children in praying for families around the world. Updated in 2018, the book uses maps, colorful photos, and stories to introduce kids to more than 90 cultures and people groups.

The introduction explains how and why we pray, and the end of the book includes descriptions of other religions and how they differ from biblical Christianity. Families, Sunday school classes, homeschool co-ops, and individuals can enjoy learning interesting facts along with prayer points for Christians and those in need of Christ.

The book is available from major book distributors.
