Reaching Children, Creatively

"GEMS Children ministry grew to become a full pledged department reaching out to thousands of children in Bihar, Jharkhand, Uttar Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh, Maharashtra and Nepal.

An old Chinese proverb says,
“Tell me and I will forget
Show me and I will remember
Involve me and I will understand
Step back and I will act”

This is very true in the ministry among children and arts comes to aid in making this possible, in engaging children effectively and meaningfully. Arts play a great part in making the learning for children very interesting. It makes the children enjoy what they learn." writes Mr. Joseph (Children Dept. Coordinator, GEMS) in this article in the Magnifying Glass column of The CALL and goes on to talk about the various forms of art used in the ministry among children and their effectiveness.
