For example, consider the following: Whom did God send to a new place and what was their experience like? Who were refugees, what was their life like, and what can we learn about caring for refugees from their stories? Study the gospels and the book of Acts to learn Jesus’ methods of mission work.
Order Lessons from My Favorite Missionary and look together at sixteen times Jesus reached out cross-culturally beyond the Jewish people.
Read mission books together. After a chapter, ask your family members questions to get them thinking about what God may be calling them to do for Him. Help them learn principles of ministry by asking them how these things could apply to their own family at work, school, or play.
