Breezes of Confirmation (Ages 11-12)

Soft Cover
Breezes of Confirmation, along with its sister books, Walking the Straight Path and Drawing on the Power of the Word, strives to create within the youth the moral structures that will underlie their decisions and guide their actions as they mature into young adults and active members of society. The materials seek to impart essential moral concepts and build certain attitudes required to live a fruitful and rewarding life.

Breezes of Confirmation represents a modest beginning in this long-term educational process. It tells the story of Musonda, a young girl who has just turned 13, and her older cousin Rose, who has come to visit for the school holidays. Together with Musonda's brother Godwin and his friend Chishimba, the girls think about their future and discuss their hopes and possibilities. A theme that runs throughout the story is that of making an effort and receiving God's confirmations. This is just one of the many possible themes on which young people need to reflect in order to develop sound moral reasoning.

Breezes of Confirmation is one book in a series prepared for junior youth. It is the outcome of the ongoing work of the William Mmutle Masetlha Foundation, a member of Development Learning Association, in the rural areas of Zambia where it is helping to develop the capacities of youth and preparing them to make the critical passage from childhood to adolescence. The Foundation's activities in that country date back nearly two decades. Through a range of programs in various fileds, including health and education, it has been striving systematically to contribute to the material and spiritual progress of the Zambian people.
