Several students and staff from Mount Ellis Academy (MEA) in Bozeman, Mont., recently teamed up with church members from the community to reach out to the local homeless population.

How much of your imagination do you use when reading through the Bible? Are you able to picture what it was like to cross the Red Sea on dry ground? What kind of imagery comes to mind when you hear the story of Jericho?

As we read through the Word of God, from Genesis to Revelation, we have many descriptions of events that took place long ago and some yet to come. For those of us who learn best by visual means, having a life-size model can help bring history to life and give us a glance into a culture we have only read about.
