In this collection of real-life stories, a compelling storyteller paints a picture of God's dynamic movement in 4 cultures, inspiring to trust that God the defender is working in their stories as well. This resource will shrink the macro picture down to approachable, individual stories of real children and teach about fundamental survival issues. The stories address some of the challenging questions that kids have and weave God's promises to orphans into each one. Special Features: Maps of the story settings, photos showing scenes and people, children's drawings as illustrations, facts and trivia about the countries, prompts to get kids thinking about their own stories and definitions of foreign words and important concepts.
