The Story of A Nail Curriculum Kit - Collection SC113


In cases where an individual document (paper record, photo, audio recording, moving image recording, etc.) is online at the Archives' Website, either the description of a specific item is underlined, or this symbol -- -- appears next to a general description to indicate that an item covered by that description is online. Clicking on the symbol or the underlining will link to the item. If there are two or more of these symbols -- -- that appear by a description, the number of symbols indicates the number of items covered by the description that are online, such as several different photos from a photo file.]

[Note: What follows is a description of the documents in this collection which are available for use at BGC Archives in Wheaton, Illinois, USA. The actual documents are not, in most cases, available online, only this description of them. Nor are they available for sale or rent.]

Collection SC113
[March 12, 2005]
The Story of a Nail Curriculum Kit; N.d.
1 folder (.1 cubic feet)

Restrictions: None

Scope and Content Description

Volume: 1 folder
Geographic coverage: Sumatra, Indonesia
Type of documents: Flash cards, photo, booklet
Subjects: Methods of presenting the Gospel, teaching missions to children
Notes: A curriculum kit produced by World Vision for use with children. The kit was adapted from a radio script by Bob Pierce. It tells the story of how missionary Hubert Mitchell first presented the Christian gospel to a group of the Kubu people in Sumatra in 1937. (The accompanying booklet is in error when it states on the first interior page that Sumatra is "300 miles due east of Borneo." Sumatra is west rather than east of Borneo.)


Unknown. Was probably given to the Archives with other miscellaneous library materials in the late 1970s.
