Connect Junior

Connect Junior is Africa Inland Mission’s new quarterly magazine for children. It includes stories, facts, activities and information to help you pray for Africa’s people and those who go and proclaim the good news of Jesus Christ. Each issue can also be used alongside one week of the adult version of Connect, so you can also use it together as a family.
