Hundreds and thousands of snowflakes drop,
Millions and billions before they stop.
Pull on your boots and button your coat,
Scamper and play while the snowflakes float.
Anthony Hurst / Hurst Publications
What is so fascinating about insects? First of all, they show the amazing creativity of God, our Creator. Scientists have identified around one million species of insects. But they estimate that there may be a few million more to discover and identify! The Amazon region of South America and the Congo region of Africa are just full of these unidentified critters.
Second, consider the immense variety of instincts in insects. Take, for example, just bees and wasps—so many types of nests that they build, and so many different foods that they eat. How do they know what kind of nests their species should build? Do they ever get mixed up and try to build one like their neighbor's? No, of course not. God gave them the natural ability to build the nest just like they are supposed to.
As you color these pictures, I hope you are amazed and thrilled with the greatness of God. More info...

In which a missionary doth take up his quill to muse upon life
Harvey Mast / Christian Light Publications
And it came to pass that one day when the even had come, not long after the sun had set in the west, and whilst mine only son was chopping wood just outside the back door of our abode, that two armed men stole through the brier fence, girt up their loins, and charged right for him. And his heart leapt upwards towards his throat, and he did straightway run for safety, yet did he not have time to bolt the door behind him....
Missionary life in Peru brought great challenges to the Mast family. But amidst tribulation and sometimes deep anguish, God gave joy, peace, and spiritual growth. In these heartfelt parables written in a style harking back to yesteryear, Harvey shares lessons God taught them through both the lighter moments and the soul-moving low points of their sojourn.
