Adventures in Odyssey ACTS giveaway!!!!!

Answer the question at the bottom to enter.  Be sure to include contact information. 

Theme: Imagine creative and fun ways to serve using your unique gifts!



Unleashing Imagination



Children are spending more and more time in front of TVs, iPads, computers, and video games. That doesn’t leave much room for kids to dream up their own visual images—like the ones that fill their minds when they hear a great story! Rather than passively receiving images, kids actively engage in making images themselves when they hear a good story. Their imaginations are enriched and stimulated, and the material becomes more personal and memorable.



Adventures in Odyssey is all about great stories—and the power of the imagination. The beloved audio
dramas are heard on over 700 radio stations, and AIO has recently expanded to books and devotionals—
including The Imagination Station series, a fast-growing line of early chapter readers. You can check
them out by downloading a FREE e-book of Imagination Station #1: Voyage with the Vikings!

This summer, Adventures in Odyssey encourages kids to write their OWN stories, as they join in ACTS:
A Call to Serve! AIO is helping children use their imaginations to serve their family, community, and
world this summer—maybe by sending a care package to a missionary or baking cookies for the local
fire department. Check out www.whitsend.org/acts  for details and a chance to win fabulous prizes,
including a mission trip with a parent to Costa Rica!

More important than prizes are the stories your child will tell about the creative ways they served
others, and how they grew as a result. And what they come up with really might change the world!



A Creative Story of Service



Fourteen-year-old Matthew, a dedicated Adventures in Odyssey fan and natural tech whiz, was inspired by a trip to the Apple store to create a smartphone app for his church. Since then, he has created 21 apps for different ministries, including his local pregnancy resource center, Joni and Friends (an international ministry for people with disabilities), and even an “Adventures in Odyssey Fan News” app!

Matthew used his God-given talents and imagination to bless others through technology. Which of your
kid’s unique gifts are waiting to be unleashed for God’s use?

As our family goes on vacation this summer we will be taking with us many packages of socks, undergarments, and toothbrushes and toothpastes. We plan to hand these items out to the homeless as we travel.

We are serving by hosting several Family Ministry Events at our church this summer. Usually we don't have anything on Sunday nights during the summer & we felt that it was a great opportunity to reach out to our families!
