Author Bonnie Rose takes us on a fascinating journey into 6 countries in Asia. General regional history, geography, people groups and missionary stories are woven into 16 wonderful weeks of learning with a 10/40 window geared towards 8-12 year olds.
What is a 10/40 worldview?
"The 10/40 Window is a geographical area of the world roughly between 10 degrees north and 40 degrees north latitude. The significance of this area is that it is home to over 4.5 billion people, over 8,000 different people groups, and some of the largest groups of unreached people in the entire world. More than 80% of the world’s poorest people live in the 10/40 window. It is an area that many people are taking intentional steps to pray for and reach out to the people who live there. You can read an excellent description of the significance of the 10/40 Window on JoshuaProject.net "
For our first stop, my daughter chose China. After reading through the Dynasties and ending with the Peoples Republic, we meet the people of China. The people of this country are as numerous and varied as the land itself. One of the people groups are the Ladakhi who live in the cold desert up in the Himalayan Mountains. Jesus was first brought to these people by missionaries traveling the Silk Route. Suggested ways to pray for the Ladakhis are given followed by discussion questions that help the reader take elements of the stories and apply them to their own life.
Finally an activity is given to go with each country. For China it was "Name the Dynasty".
After China we were draw into Iran by Yasmin's heart stopping tale , the perseverance of Hao in Vietnam, courage of Thao in Laos, the steadfastness of Sanjoy in Bangleseh and the faith of Manisha in Nepal.
