Who are we? We are Catherine Slight and Lin Pearson. We live in Edinburgh, Scotland.
Catherine: I became a Christian at the age of eleven. Right away I began telling my friends and others about Jesus. Later I became a Sunday School teacher, and then from 1968, a member of The Faith Mission, until I retired in 2002.
Lin: It was when I was a student in teacher training College that I became a Christian. Two years later, in 1972, I joined Catherine in the work of The Faith Mission. At first our work was among “teens and twenties”, though it wasn’t long before we knew God was leading us to extend our ministry, so as to reach children.
We enjoyed travelling to camps and children’s/youth events in churches throughout Britain and Ireland.
Because we were invited to return to the same areas on successive years, we had to originate fresh material. This included Bible teaching life-applications, visuals for review games, topical teaching series, etc.
We also visited schools, teaching Religious Education classes and conducting assemblies. For fifteen years we taught weekly “Religious and Moral Education” classes in three of our local Primary ( elementary) schools and a school for young people aged 5-16 with special needs. We have also travelled with our children’s ministry training sessions, to help Sunday School teachers and kid’s leaders in their ministry of reaching children for Christ.
We aim to regularly put online our materials and ahope these will be of use to you as you reach kids for Christ.
