The assembly time started with our translators singing lots of songs. The kids were so excited to sing praises to the Lord. We taught them "Our God is so Big" and they caught on quickly. Our memory verse for the week is John 16:33. "In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world!" Our translators even came up with a song to go along with it and the kids love singing it! Jen then taught about how God wins against all kings and armies, using the stories of Gideon, and David and Goliath as examples.
After the assembly and a few changes, we all finally settled into our classrooms and got to work! Each of the classes had lots of help from an assortment of translators, teachers, and church helpers. It was so great to see everyone working together for the Kingdom!
Pray for our day tomorrow. We are expecting many more children and are trying to accommodate all of them! Pray that we are able to handle the new number of kids and love on each of them the way Christ calls us to.
Pray for each of our helpers. Our translators, teachers, and church helpers are such an amazing asset to our team. Thank the Lord for them and ask Him to bless them as they help this week.
Pray for the children to respond to the fact that God is bigger than all others gods. This is a very important lesson for the kids here. Voodoo is a very prevalent practice here. Each of the children are impacted by voodoo in one way or another. Pray that the truth of Gods power will penetrate their hearts and wash away all of the fear and bondage from voodoo.
Thank each of you for your prayer support! We can feel your prayers, so keep them coming!
