Our First Sunday School Class



This past Sunday was a big day for us. We had our first Sunday School class. How exciting!! Our friends Carlos and his wife volunteered to come and help us with kids songs since we don´t know them yet. So we transformed our living room into a little class. We hauled in some blocks and boards to make benches. Hannah was ready with brownies, Joseph with a bunch of smiles and I had a story. We had ten children!! I told the story of Lazarus rising from the dead. I butchered their Spanish but God helped and they got the message. At the end I told the children that the Bible says if we have sin in our hearts we are dead just like Lazarus. But Jesus could forgive our sins and give us life. Just about every one of them prayed and invited Jesus into their hearts.

Next Sunday they are suppossed to bring their friends so I´m sure our little congregation is going to grow. Please pray for us and the children that God would reach their hearts and eventually their parents and families.

Keep up the good work. We are praying for you good folk. We love those benches, and to think our people complain when they sit on cushions too long.

Looking Great !!!
(Jeanne, the benches were the first thing I saw too! The kids we pick up for S.S. would have those crashed before they even got up on them!)

I love to read you blog when I remember. It is exciting to see what God is doing in other parts of the world. Congrats to Hannah for her fine cooking and making a ministry out of it.
Looking forward to hearing/seeing more of your ministry.
