General
  • Great site on Kierkegaard!
  • Another massive site: teacher’s use initially. You’ll use it to find sites for your children. If they want to read the originals, they are here!
  • Worldwide Missions: Year 3 encourages you and your children to pray for Hindus and Buddhists. Three weeks are devoted to the lives of the missionaries. You will enjoy reading summaries of their lives. Site contains statistics that give a clear picture of prayer. Use of this site removes the need to purchase Operation World.
