Overcoming Obstacles in Nagaland
Maranatha Kids • 14-Jul-2022
www.maranatha.org -- This week, we’ll meet a group of Seventh-day Adventists in India who wanted to start their own church, but faced a number of challenges along the way. First, they were treated poorly by their neighbors. Then, they tried to secure land for a church, but were given a bad piece of land that used to be a lake. No matter the obstacles they faced, your kids will see how this group continued to grow, and how Maranatha eventually helped them enhance their school.
