Thank you so much for your generous donation. The hand puppets are perfect for using in my teacher puppet workshops, and I gave 2 to a principal in a village school. I will share the books and DVDs with both village schools where I will be working. The finger puppets will be used in the gift bags that we give our sponsored children for their birthdays.

The teachers are so hungry for anything to help them make learning more fun and enjoyable. And they are very excited about getting patterns so they can make puppets. Here’s a photo of a first grade teacher using a puppet that I gave her last year. The kids love it.

I will be implementing a writing program in grades 1-4, doing writing & puppet workshops for teachers, and school puppet shows. The writing program is being done with the Belize Ministry of Education, Literacy Unit.

Again, thanks much for your generous donation and God bless.

We love to equip those who are training others!

Here is another “Thank you” letter we just got from someone we recently provided with resources who was providing training to leaders in Mexico. It is a great example of how when you give to MRI your small donation can have a wide-spread impact across a large region impacting countless children, as you can see by the following note.

Mr. MRI,

Today I returned from the seminar I presented to the students and area children’s workers in Torroen, Coahuila, Mexico. We had about twenty-five workers representing eight churches from the area. The school’s student body also represents an additional 12 cities throughout Mexico and Central America. The Children’s Ministry seminar I presented was 12 hours spread out over four days. Attached are photos (a group pic “Thank you”, attendees using puppets, and attendees making paper sack puppets).

It was a worthwhile, and greatly appreciated effort. Praise God as eyes were opened to the importance of ministry that is specific to children.
