Watch the Prologue to Off-Road Encounters, where dad Jim Richardson tells his wife and two teens, sixteen-year old Bari and fourteen-year old Thomas, that they’re going on a surprise trip to four Muslim countries!


Episode One: Off-Road encounters

Watch Episode One of Off-Road Encounters, where the Richardson family travels to their first Muslim country, nope, not gonna tell you where!


Let’s talk about it…

  1. How would you feel if your mom or dad told you that you were going to travel around the world to four Muslim countries on a surprise trip?

  2. What did you like most about this first adventure the Richardson family had?

  3. How are Muslims in this country the same as what you imagined? How were they different than what you imagined?

Let’s Do something…

  1. Try to find this country on a map. Look at all the countries around it, and how far away it is from your own country.

  2. Did you notice how Muslims prayed? The Bible describes people praying this way too! Why don’t you try praying to God, for Muslims, in some of the ways you saw?

  3. You could put out a tablecloth on the floor, and set up a meal to eat sitting on the ground together, just like you saw in the Episode!

Let’s learn some more…

  1. Did you know that there are 1.7 billion Muslims in the world? Just to compare, there’s 300 million people in the United States and 60 million people in France.

  2. Did you know that only three cross-cultural workers will go to live with every million Muslims to offer Jesus Christ to them? That’s not nearly enough! How will they ever experience the Good News of the Kingdom of God?

See you next week! You’ll get Episode 2 in your e-mail inbox in seven days. Guess what country the Richardson’s are going to next? You’ll never guess because it’s not in the Arab world!
