Looking for a fun and educational way to teach kids about missions? Search no further! Meet Addison Venture, World FAMOUS Explorer and advocate for native missionaries. Join Addison as he explores the world, discovers the love of God, and meets native missionaries who are busy sharing the Good News of salvation in Jesus—all across the globe. Ad’s official Travel Log entries come to you weekly, complete with AdVentures of his journeys; a Dig Deeper Bible study section; a SNAPS section for putting each week’s lesson into practice at home; a Missionary Moment; a Prayer Pocket; and Dear Adeline letters filled with fun regional facts. The full potential of Ad’s ventures is limited only by your imagination. These stories could be read aloud or, better yet, acted out by a volunteer willing to play the part of a World FAMOUS Explorer. Our prayer is that you will be able to use these stories and biblical truths at home or in the classroom as a way to share the heart of native missions with the next generation.
