Sonlight (a homeschool curriculum) is offering a completely free five-week Passport to India online adventure, beginning October 5, 2010.
Sign up for Passport to India and you’ll receive a Welcome Kit in the mail as well as five weeks of videos taking you on a journey into fascinating places in India. Your host is Chris, a “regular guy” with a burning curiosity about India that will lead you into remote villages, a typical Indian home, bustling temple cities and more!
Your adventure in India will be enhanced by educational activities relating to each episode, from maps and photos to devotionals and recipes.
During this 5-week program, you will:
- See and experience the real India — without ever leaving your neighborhood!
- Explore India’s incredible, diverse culture, people and places
- Enhance your homeschooling with unique educational resources
- Meet the people God is using to bring the Gospel to India’s 400+ million unreached
- Discover how you can reach boys and girls in India with the love of Jesus by supporting Children’s Bible Clubs!
I’m very curious about this because 3 years ago, I went on a missions trip to India. That’s me in the picture above passing out pencils in a school. I remember the principal explaining to the kids not to eat the colorful thing on the end of the pencil – it was not candy. That was the first time they saw a large eraser top! They were thrilled just to get a pencil! These kids didn’t have much and I learned after that trip what true poverty is and how blessed we are in this country. I traveled with a couple that is heading back to India, after 3 years of living in the states to attend Bible College, to work at a school and open an orphanage. I sponsor a child through their ministry. They will be greatly missed, but I am excited for the work they will be doing full time helping these kids!
So anyway, I’m very curious about these videos that Sonlight is offering – it will be great to watch and compare with the villages I visited. Even though the videos will be interesting and educational, I still think everyone should just go there!!! 🙂
