It started in a children’s class in a small inner-city church. The idea was simple: promote missions.
Many of the children, like Marina, weren’t born in the United States. Marina came to this country as a refugee from Myanmar. Her parents fled due to Christian persecution and ended up on the steps of a Baptist church one Sunday morning. The rest of the class was made up of kids from the inner-city neighborhood surrounding the church, along with a few kids from the suburbs who attend with their parents.
