Capturing Jasmina by Kimberly Rae

Capturing Jasmina, fiction for young adult readers, is the story of Jasmina, a young girl in India, and her brother, Samir. The children are sold by their father to a man promising them an education and good jobs. But, as Jasmina and Samir soon discover, the man is providing an education, not in a school, but as a slave in his sweatshop garment factory. While Samir quickly submits to his new life of misery, Jasmina never stops planning an escape. She comes to realize that escape doesn’t always mean freedom.
Teens will identify with Jasmina as, though they may not be running from traffickers, they are looking for acceptance and love, and the true refuge for all is the same - the Lord Jesus Christ.
This book expounds on the terrifying prospect of red-light districts and human trafficking without going into the painfully honest details that would be reserved for more mature audiences.

Seeds, Dirt, Fruit DVD

Jesus told simple stories so everyone who heard them would understand the message. Host Jim Bergwall takes the seeds of these stories, digs into them and illustrates with hands-on teaching how "good fruit doesn't just happen."
SEEDS In "Seeds," Jim explains that a seed can be dormant for days, weeks, even years before the conditions are right for it to sprout. Then it becomes the plant it was designed to be. In this episode, Jim conveys that, whether it is literal seeds or the Word of God, seeds contain LIFE!
DIRT As he digs further in "Dirt," Jim examines the various kinds of soil, bringing to life Jesus' Parable of the Sower. He visits a scientist, who reveals the ingredients necessary to produce good soil, which will nurture the seeds into healthy, life-giving plants.
FRUIT What does it really mean to "bear fruit?" Jim Bergwall explains this Biblical principle using the fruit we eat as an example. Join him as he visits an orchard and shows how good fruit appeals to all five senses, it is nourishing and carries life.
Using Scripture and hands-on teaching from a fruit-grower, Jim shows how good fruit is carefully tended, needs light and water and is pruned to make better fruit. This series is a useful tool for family devotions, Sunday school, children's church, VBS, or for anyone who wants a deeper understanding of what it really means to Abide in the True Vine.
Three segments, approximately 28 minutes each
Recommended for ages 6-12 but interesting for even adults!
