What Do You Know About Missions?

My friend Katherine has a strong background in missions.  She's written a wonderful, practical post to assist us in informing ourselves, our children, and our churches and faith communities about a topic that is sadly neglected in most churches, that of missions discipleship.

She included many educational website references in her post, including  What is the 10/40 window?  Here is a definition from the website itself:

What is the 10/40 Window?

The 10/40 Window is an area of the world that contains the largest population of non-Christians in the world. The area extends from 10 degrees to 40 degrees North of the equator, and stretches from North Africa across to China.

I learned so much just from this one website!  Katherine's post also includes lists of missionary biographies, including those suitable to read aloud to our children.  Please, please, bookmark this link if you have to and read her wonderful post!
