In the African homelands, throughout the villages, stories are passed on from family kraal to family kraal. One story held true for years. It was the story of how a King named Jesus came to Thabo's village and changed everything. Come join Joshua and his father as they journey through the villages, searching for Thabo. Children will learn some of the N. Pedi language as they read and look through the glossary provided. Activity suggestions are included to help aid children in understanding the message of Jesus' love, power and salvation.
