We had a great time in Sunday School this last Sunday in November. There are so many little ones that have been coming. Christian says it’s parents sending them so they have something to eat. That’s fine with me, they also get to hear the word of God and I believe it when He says In Isaiah 55:11
so shall my word be that goes out from my mouth;
it shall not return to me empty,
but it shall accomplish that which I purpose,
and shall succeed in the thing for which I sent it.
Every time the kids hear the Word, tiny seeds are planted that when watered over time will sprout and bloom. One day they will fully understand what God was telling them through these stories. I am so encouraged every time we come together at their understanding of the message of the stories. And their memory of the scripture verses is just so awesome, even the very little ones remember! I am thankful I have this opportunity to help bring children closer to Jesus – though it is one of the biggest challenges I face in my life. I have always felt so inadequate to work with children, feel like that is just not my gift and have had to fill the void because there was no one else to do it. But apparently God has a different view of it – or maybe it’s just a lesson in obedience! I love the children, but I also pray that with mentoring the teenagers, they will one day be able to do most of the service – they are able to minister in ways I can not because of the culture differences. But I know I will always have a part in it because my heart desires all of them to have a better life and to follow Jesus!
