The Journey Of Abraham - Kids Bible Maps

This is the story of Abraham`s Journey from his home in Ur all the way to the distant land of Egypt. Before God changed his name to Abraham, his name was Abram, and this was his name during his journey. It all began one day when his father decided for them to leave their home in Ur and travel to Canaan. On their way, they stopped in the beautiful city of Haran where there are lots of big mountains and good farmland next to the Euphrates River. After seeing how beautiful Haran was, they decided to stay and make it their new home. When Abram was 75 years old, God spoke to him telling him to leave everything behind except his wife Sarai, and his nephew Lot, and travel to wherever God leads him. Abram obeyed and they went on their way to Canaan. When they arrived, God appeared to Abram and told him that this land would belong to his family because of his obedience! Soon after arriving in Canaan, there was a severe famine; which means there was no food to eat. The famine forced Abram and Sarai to travel to Egypt where the pyramids and mummies are because they had plenty of food!
