World Mission Broadcast South America Launches Children’s Program

Pilar, Argentina — For the first time in the history of the Church of the Nazarene, WMB South America readies to launch a program specifically targeted to evangelize and disciple children. In conjunction with the SAM Region Sunday School Ministries, “Aventuras Con Buzy” (Adventures with Buzy) will begin broadcasting in Latin America in February. Buzy, which comes from the Spanish word “buzón” for mailbox, visits with his friends Juani, Micaela, Nico y Roxy each week. Buzy, along with Punta Fina, a pencil whose name means “Fine Point”, encourage the children to study their Bibles and do the weekly homework assignments.

The program is designed for children between the ages of 4 – 11 years old and addresses many issues Latin children face daily, including getting along with siblings, love, family, etc. A website is currently under development which will provide weekly homework assignments that children will be able to download and print.

Already radio stations in Peru, Ecuador, Colombia, Guatemala, Mexico, Argentina and the US have agreed to air “Aventuras Con Buzy.” Additional planning with SAM Region Sunday School Ministries is underway to create regional Sunday School materials using Buzy and his friends.
