“Ahlan” from Saudi Arabia:

We crossed the border into Saudi Arabia this morning and are excited to learn about the continent of Asia!  The boys found Saudi Arabia on the map and globe and listened to the national anthem and some of the local music.  We read about the religion of Islam and learned some ways that we can pray for Muslims to know the truth about Jesus.  Brendan and Ryan colored the flag of Saudi Arabia while I read another chapter about David Livingstone.  Next, they copied the weekly Bible verse.  For Science, we read about how humans impact the environment and completed a worksheet to help us think about how we personally can effect the ecosystems around us.  We watched a wonderful video called “What is Islam?” during lunch and then discussed the differences between Islam and Christianity.  Now, we’re off to guitar lessons :)!

Verse of the Day:  Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.”  John 14:6

  1. Saudi Arabia! This should be very interesting, especially with all that is going on in our world today.

    Had a great time Friday night and it was fun learning how to play Phase 10 again. Maybe, next time I can move on past # 3! HA!

    Have a great day!

    Love you all,

    Mom
