This teacher's guide works in collaboration with the Journey of Hope Student Book. In collaboration with World Vision and the End Violence Against Children Campaign, we are creating a Book of Hope that speaks to the abused, the abuser, and the onlooker of abuse. It will be a place where teenagers can begin or continue their journey of redemption, that allows them to reflect upon what’s been done to them or what they’ve seen or what they’ve done, and then process through the lens of the Gospel through the words of Scripture. Through a relatable wrap around story and matching Scripture passages, teens will be comforted by the fact that the Bible doesn’t shy away from sensitive topics, and that Jesus comes down to meet us in our suffering and greatest time of need. Key Theme: Christ Our Redeemer - From the standpoint of the abused – Jesus can redeem their brokenness, The Holy Spirit can bring comfort and empower them to speak and walk in truth and to live in the fullness of joy that He intended - From the standpoint of the onlooker – Since we have been redeemed, our mandate is to stand with and up for those who suffer and are in need and to affirm the redemptive work of the gospel in the life of both the abused and the abuser - From the standpoint of the abuser – Jesus offers forgiveness for the repentant heart. There is restoration and healing. read more

The Football Book, The True Champion, was initially created to capitalize on the universally shared life lessons found in the game of football (or American soccer). It focuses on the life of the True Champion, Jesus Christ and targets football players who are between 12 and 19 years old. Throughout the book, young sports enthusiasts will read about Jesus, learn fun facts about football, read a testimony of a tragedy from the young Brazilian soccer team, test their football knowledge, and even learn how to sharpen their football skills. In the end, readers are invited to be a part of the True Champion’s team! This book is a modification of an older version and the Spanish and French translations will replace the books that are currently used in Latin America and Francophone Africa, with the potential to spread across Europe, Asia and Russia surrounding the excitement of the World Cup in 2018. read more
