Bible Study   Leave a comment

BIBLE STUDY

On January 18, using the momentum from the VBS, I began a Bible study with the adolescents (ages 11-14), which meets three times a week during school vacation. There are 15 regulars, although we’ve had up to 19. What joy!

I am using a discipleship program in Spanish that I bought in the States (thanks to a donation from Nueva Vida). I have been teaching the kids to have a daily Bible study and prayer time with God. I give them a snack at the end.

The kids had a contest these first two weeks to earn the most points. Six earned over 20 points (attendance, memory verses, Bible, and homework); I gave them flipflops. I also awarded two who came every day and on time. I also gave little prizes to those who earned less but put forth effort.

As Josué and I are going to Lima for a week to celebrate our one year anniversary, Mama Luz will take over, sharing her advice and humor.

I will offer ESL classes to those who continue in the discipleship program, which will decrease to once a week when school begins.

The discipleship program will include baptism teaching in May. We plan to have a baptism for the adolescents in early June.

February 22-25, Josué and I, and the ministry team, are taking a river trip to Tamshiacu, a village 6 hours away by motorboat. Six adolescents, who are showing faithfulness to the Club and Bible study, will go with us. (We had a meeting this afternoon with their parents, where they gave us signed permission forms.) We will teach the village kids from the book of Daniel (from VBS), with dramas and choreographies.

PRAYER REQUESTS

  • The Bible study youth. God’s guidance for me to disciple them.
  • The river trip—preparation and protection.
  • The kids going on the river trip: Karen, Lonny, Lucero, Christofer, Carla, and Shirley.

FINANCIAL NEEDS

  • A supporter who will “adopt” the Bible study and English classes for this school year (March-December)—the cost is $80/ month for copies, materials, snacks, and prizes for 15-20 kids.
  • $150 to cover food for the youth to share dramas, teachings, and choreographies in a nearby village.
