Missionary Wall Map

The Johnson's love our church (Grace Community), and we love the missionaries our church supports! We have so many of those cards with the missionaries picture, where they serve, and how to pray for them. I thought it would be fun to get a world map and show Maddie where they all are. The map was $4 at Target, and the missionary cards are, of course, free. What a fun and inexpensive project. I am going to rotate through the cards, because we have so many to choose from. If you want to see a list of our missionaries go here. Then if you want to learn more about a specific missionary, you just click on their name. I hope Maddie will learn a few things from this project...
1. She is not the center of the universe :)
2. That God is at work in so many different places all at once
3. How to pray for our missionaries
4. The names of countries and where they are on the map
5. That Papa is in the Czech Republic right now
6. And I'm sure I'll think of more as she grows older

Ditto to Melissa! We have all the pics in a book on the table and pray for a different family each day at breakfast. But I may also put them up on our world map!
