Mission Friends

Mission Friends

Welcome! Mission Friends is an online program of the LCMS that promotes our international mission work among the Synod’s children. Although written for children in the fourth grade, the coloring sheets, country information pages, recipes and fun facts about missions can be easily adapted for younger or older children. This FREE program is made up of online and reproducible activities with information about each of our five world regions.

Discover what it’s like to be a missionary and have fun learning about different cultures.
