The World on Our Backs

A great way to find connections from across the world

Purpose: To help group members begin thinking internationally and missionally.

Activity: Instruct your group members to examine their various items of clothing and identify what countries they were manufactured in. People will probably need to help each other read tags in order to accomplish this, so let them know that doing so is acceptable.

After several minutes have passed, have group members who are willing share which countries their clothes have come from. If time allows, encourage everyone to pray briefly for God's guidance for those countries and for the individuals who had a hand in manufacturing their clothes.
