Our First Book
Finmore's Humongous Talking Worm
Finmore spends many happy hours in Ocean Flora Village playing fish ball and other games with his friends, but his favorite past time is lounging and watching the fishermen's worms. Finmore feels sure he is strong enough to resist even the fattest and most appealing worm. Although his mother has warned him about temptation, Finmore has trouble quite grasping the meaning of temptation-at such a young age. Then one day Finmore encounters the most humongous worm he has every spied in his little fish life. And could it be? Yes! He even hears it calling his name! What will Finmore do? Read a beautifully illustrated story to a young child. From a little fish, let them learn a very big lesson regarding the power of temptation and the gift of second chances in life. In turn, your book purchase will also be helping children through our partnering charity. One hundred percent of the book royalties are given to TeachBeyond Ministries. Read below about their work.
Our First Beneficiary-
TeachBeyond is a mission organization that wholeheartedly desires to serve our Father’s world, to love Jesus Christ, and to see individuals and communities transformed by His Spirit through education. TeachBeyond currently has nearly 800 full-time members in over 50 countries serving children in a variety of schools, language centers, camps, and other educational programs. Proceeds from book sales of Finmore’s Humongous Talking Worm will be allocated towards three specific projects outlined below that are supported through TeachBeyond's Global Impact Fund.
FATEB Kinshasa Academy is a school in the Democratic Republic of the Congo that was created to be a “best practice school” for the education system of the entire country of the DRC. Though this school was only founded in 2015, there have already been remarkable stories of student transformation as the school utilizes a distinctively caring and creative approach to education that is rare in the DRC. Due to the great reputation the school has established, the number of students that are served is only limited by finances and campus size. Additionally, teachers from throughout the country are now seeking training from this school so that they can see similar results in their own classrooms.
In 2019, TeachBeyond English Camps impacted over 900 campers and students in 10 countries at 25 camps. In all of the camps — whether they are in Latin America, Europe, or Central and Southeast Asia — a consistent trend has been that many, many students come from homes and communities where there is despair, hurt, loneliness, depression, suicide, addiction, and more. Together, the short-term teams and local staff work to create a safe, warm, loving environment. Over the course of the camp week, students hear, see, and experience the love of Jesus. They learn about their identity in Him and truths from the Bible. With the guidance of the Holy Spirit, they experience forgiveness, grace, faith, hope, and love.
BridgeWay North American School in Mexico City is a bilingual school that opened in 2017 with a twofold mission. The first aspect of that mission is to provide a quality education for the children of missionaries who are working to establish Evangelical churches and serve the local people in Mexico City. BridgeWay North American School also provides a strategic outreach opportunity to the local population since it is able to serve many Mexican families that would never attend any sort of Evangelical church event. Through utilizing a bilingual curriculum and a biblically-based moral framework, the school has been able to establish an environment where God is transforming missionary kids as well as local Mexican families.
