Club: Miracles of Jesus   Leave a comment

This week´s lesson was on the Miracles of Jesus. I illustrated the miracle of Jesus´ turning water into wine with a native purple corn juice and the miracle of the feeding of the 5000 with bread and fried fish.  The kids made a wall hanging with a Bible verse that talks about God´s extraordinary power and colored wine vats, loaves of bread, and fishes.

Saturday Craft: Paper Butterfly   Leave a comment

The kids formed the wings out of coffee filters (my stepmom sent me these several years ago—for this same craft), which they decorated with markers and sprayed with water to make them bleed. A beaded piper cleaner was the body, and a wooden clothes pin with a magnet on the back was glued to the back. The kids attached the Bible verse 2 Corinthians 5:17, “If any man is in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things have become new.”

August´s School for Parents   Leave a comment

A couple, parents of 5 children, spoke on communicating with God, spouse, and children to have a healthy home. 20 parents assisted.

I am still seeking a donor who would provide $35/month specifically for this important outreach project (covers the meal and food give-aways–milk, speghetti, sugar, etc).

Club: Becoming Disciples of Jesus   Leave a comment

My lesson, from the Life of Jesus, was on becoming disciples of Jesus. The memory verse was Mathew 4:19 in which Jesus calls us to be fishers of men. Renee, a supporter, gave me cut-out paper fish, and I wrote each word of the verse on a fish; the kids, in 4 groups, competed to put the fish in the correct order.

Jahasiel´s 8th Birthday   Leave a comment

Our nephew Jahasiel turned 8 last week. Josue bought him some clothes and sunglasses. His sponsor Don sent a donation and we took Jahasiel shopping for some things he needed. We also had a family dinner in his honor. It was extra special, as his great-grandfather was there (see first picture). The last picture is of Josue, Joela, and me in new Peruvian shirts.

Darla has a Sponsor!   Leave a comment

Last month (see Blog entry July 23), I asked for a sponsor for Darla. She now has one! Thanks to God and to her sponsor Beckie for providing for this precocious little girl. She loves her stuffed animal, new clothes, and card–it put a big smile on her face!
