"We will not hide them from their children, but tell to the coming generation the glorious deeds of the Lord, and his might, and the wonders that he has done . . . that the next generation might know them, the children yet unborn, and arise and tell them to their children, so that they should set their hope in God and not forget the works of God, but keep his commandments" (Psalm 78:4, 6-7).
Missionary biographies are a great resource for learning of the glorious deeds of the Lord. Hearing of God's work may spur you on to share the gospel with your neighbor or take the message of reconciliation to those who have never heard. As the children of Westminster participate in the M&M project, perhaps the teens and adults could join them by reading missionary biographies and using this blog to post comments about what they are learning. A simple thought, quote, or short story to encourage the body. (And who knows, we might even be able to round up some M&Ms for the adults too.)
You can find several good missionary biographies in our church library, borrow one from one of our pastors, or buy one from the Westminster Seminary Bookstore. If you're not sure where to start, try reading or listening to one of the many biographical sermons by John Piper. Or perhaps you want to talk to a real live missionary yourself (there are many "retired" missionaries at Westminster and many will be coming to visit soon for our annual Missions Conference).
Enjoy reading about other ambassadors for Christ, and may God's work through them encourage you as you strive to be a faithful ambassador for Christ yourself.
