I Heard Good News Today

From the very first "Good News" (Jesus himself) to modern examples, this warm, inspiring volume of 93 short stories (named for the African song in story #59) tells of early missionaries and Christians from around the world—loving, caring, serving and sharing in the name of Christ.

Your Sonlight program is designed to help your children see how God has worked in history and is working today. The missionary stories in this book provide both a global perspective and concrete reminders of God's faithfulness in your Kindergarten or Core A package. As you learn about cultures, these glimpses into the lives of specific people in history will help solidify your children's understanding of the world.
