Seventh grade students in history class at the King’s Academy are making an impact in their world. They recently worked with Voice of the Martyrs to help bring the gospel to guerrillas in the jungles of Colombia.
The students made parachutes that will be used to deliver Christian literature, Bibles and solar-powered radios by a missionary pilot. The students made the parachutes from start to finish, from cutting out the pattern to sewing on the cords. They also donated money to help offset the cost of fuel and materials.
“This project was a great tie-in to our study of Latin America, making it real to the students. We were happy to partner with courageous Christians to bring the message of peace to guerrilla-controlled regions,” teacher Cathe Smythe said.
