  1. Thanks Beth 🙂 those memory verses are one of the things I am most thankful for from my time spent at TMI (one of the many!!)
    Hope you have a great day! God bless!!

  2. I am a 4 time FTM & 1 time leader (‘86-‘93.) I have my 1st & 2nd year verse packs (red & navy) but cannot find my 3rd & 4th year (yellow & aqua.) Do you all have these available in a PDF or packets that could be purchased? I would love to have the 3rd & 4th packets for review 🙂

  3. The AWANA program recently dropped most of their Bible memorization and has changed from active student Bible memorization to passive learning. We have been looking to supplement the new curriculum with Bible verse packets and Armor of God pins and awards. It is so important to learn Gods Word!

    We all went on Teen Missions (Allen Family of Bemidji, MN) and we knew about your wonderful focus on God’s Word through memorization packets. Having them available will make it possible for our AWANA program to continue our focus on learning God’s Word through Bible memorization!

    Thank-you for making these resources available for download!!!

  4. Thank God I found them today.Thrilled To see these Verses Today. Memory verses always Remind me TMI and Quiz..I am always a Champion in my TMI.I’m memorizing them again.Thank you who ever did this!!!

  5. I attended Teen Missions in 1988 in Zimbabwe, these were the exact verses that we studies during Boot Camp.I suggest that they change them to cover broader topics of the Bible.I gained a lot of Bible knowledge from this exercise , because after studying were given certificates with Bob Bland’s signature in them after beating all the teams that were there in the Camp.

    1. Wendy, Yes, the kids are required to memorize the verses in KJV. It provides continuity as the kids will quiz weekly and have to say their verses to a leader daily. If they memorize in different versions, it would be hard for the leaders to know if they said them correctly.
