There are nearly 4,000 languages worldwide with absolutely no portion of God's Word and many of them reside in the 10/40 window. The Opening the 10/40 Window in the Classroom curriculum was developed for use with elementary aged students. The curriculum is based on Bibleless people groups and consists of thirteen lessons per people group. The areas of study for each people group focuses on the following four categories: geography, culture, language, and religion. Each lesson is designed to help students understand how a Bibleless people group lives, what they believe, what their needs are, and how we can approach them from a Biblical perspective. Each lesson ends with a Biblical application for the students and a time of prayer for their Bibleless people group.
This curriculum creates an opportunity for young people to use their Christian education for the glory of God. The material was developed with a two-fold goal in mind. The first goal is that God would be known and worshipped among the nations. Our second goal is that the students would know the need and would understand that they can have an active part in meeting it. We pray that God would be magnified through this material, and that it would spark interest in the hearts of students to do something about the great need.
