Sunday, Jerry and I went to a church on top of the mountain to help their newly started children's church. First, we joined in praise and worship. Jerry knew all the songs, but I just tried to keep up with the words on the screen! I noticed that the children were especially well-behaved. This isn't always the case.
The church meets in an old YWCA building. The children's church meets in the outer area. Monkeys are frequent visitors but the kids are so used to their clamoring on the tin roof and up and down the ledges, that they weren't as distracted as this foreigner. Had the windows not been closed, the monkeys would have joined the class, and taken anything that was loose!
The lesson was on the days of creation. I taught the children how to make an eight-page book from one sheet of paper. They each made their own Book Of Creation to share with their families, and help them remember what an awesome Creator God we have. Each one is precious in His sight because He created them. Tuesday, I met with the teachers (one is pictured here) to give them some suggestions for their CHildren's Church, and teach them how to use the many donated books and teaching materials. The best being the Betty Luekens Bible in Felt kit, which the teacher used to tell the story.
