Jonah and the Whale Shark   Leave a comment

Jonah didn´t want Nineveh to know God´s salvation, so he ran away. But he learned the hard way (from the belly of a whale shark) to forgive his enemies and show them God´s love. We too have a hard time forgiving those who have hurt us, but Jesus did, and asks us to as well. Let´s learn the lesson from Jonah, and forgive even when it´s hard.

Thanks to Leslie for bringing hundreds of paper plates (for the “big fish” craft) and boxes of goldfishes to help the kids remember this lesson. Along with the goldfish crackers, the kids enjoyed tuna fish sandwiches (get it?!) and a native purple drink called chicha morada (to look like the sea!).
