Asia: People and History

Bonnie Rose Hudson

Welcome to The Asia: Safari Series!

asiasaf_endEmbark on an Asian safari with your guide, Safari Saeed. Discover new places and find new people to pray for. On this very special safari, you will be able to do what was almost impossible to do in ancient times—travel from one edge of Asia to the other and back again, visit more than thirty countries along the way, and see dozens of special animals. The journey will carry you 8,000 miles along parts of the Silk Road, the Spice Route, and the Incense Road, and there will be a few detours along the way. You will also see that God is SO very creative in the way He designed the animals that live in Asia.

Most importantly, Safari Saeed will share with us what he has learned about the people in all of the different countries, those who know about Jesus and those who don’t. He has looked for ways we can help and ways we can pray. His favorite verse is “For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish but have everlasting life.” It’s John 3:16; it’s also Saeed’s mission. “For God so loved the world…” The world—all of it, from the steaming hot jungles to the snowy Himalaya Mountains. God sent Jesus to save every person in every land.

You don’t have to travel to Asia to journey along the Silk Road. Thankfully, you can do it right where you are through resources like this class. There are also free activity books you can download from Kids of Courage, the children’s ministry of The Voice of the Martyrs. There are a lot of free resources on my website,, and on my special site for kids, Exploring with Jake. I even wrote a book all about Asia, its people, the persecuted Church, and ways kids and their families can pray.

I pray this course will be a blessing to you and your family. Please feel free to send me a note any time at

God bless!
