Why Does Tanya Support Trek Thru Truth?
During my years of working in children’s ministry, I came to realize that children’s workers are seed planters. Fruit from our efforts may not blossom until the teenage or even adult years. Yet we must plant seeds and water, water, water until it is time for our children to bear fruit. I also learned children learn best and internalize truth when we teach using ALL the senses – touch, sight, hearing, taste, and smell.
Trek Thru Truth is going to be a most wonderful way to plant spiritual seeds in our children and allow them to experience the Bible with all their senses. TTT will help show God’s extravagant love to children of all ages.
