WAXHAW, NC – JAARS welcomed children and their families for an afternoon of fun on October 9, 2021.  This program was designed to teach children about the world and JAARS’s mission in it.  The event began with an opening from Loren Rothman, IT Specialist, and Nard Pugyao, a retired helicopter pilot from the Northern Philippines who learned about Christianity when the Bible was translated into his heart language.

The participants were broken up into groups and travelled “around the world” without leaving Waxhaw.  Papua New Guinea, Northern Africa, and many other remote areas were discussed with missionaries sharing their experiences in those areas.  Children were able to get up close up views of planes, helicopters, boats, and other specialized tools to help reach remote areas.  They also played games and ran through obstacle courses to learn about the difficulties of reaching these remote areas.
