This has been a very busy week for us. Aside from the fact that the weather is getting me sick.Super lamig!
Actually because of it I was downed again with colds and flu. In fact,last Tuesday we went to New Medical Centre – Buhaira for consultation.
The doctor prescribed Cefuroxime tablet (500 mg) to be taken 2x a day for five days along with Sinecod syrup and anti-histamine. I am also drinking warm water with lemon to soothe my throat. Sakit sa lungs ng ubo ko at parang hinihiwa ang throat ko everytime im coughing
I know I should not complain about this sickness dahil mas marami pang ibang me malubhang sakit. Kaso di na ko makatulog sa gabi. Can you pray for me,please.
On the positive note, I want to share my passion. Our Kids Ministry.
Our lesson “Born for a purpose”. Can you guess who amongst the bible characters we studied? It’s none other than the very brave Queen Esther.
Our aim is that the children will understand they were not born by accident, but for a purpose.
For some who doesn’t know Queen Esther – Esther was a beautiful young Jewish girl who lived in Persia with her cousin Mordecai. God had a plan for Esther’s life, even though she didn’t know it from the beginning. The King of Persia wanted to marry a beautiful young woman and make her the queen of the kingdom. When King Xerxes saw Mordecai’s cousin Esther, he fell in love with her. Esther married King Xerxes and became the new queen.
One of the king’s helpers, Haman, hated Mordecai because Mordecai would not bow down to him. Haman convinced King Xerxes to make a law that Mordecai and all the Jewish people should be killed. King Xerxes did not know that his beautiful young queen was a Jewish girl. When Mordecai heard the new law, he sent a message to Queen Esther, asking her for help.
Even though the King had not called for Esther and she might be punished, she bravely went to see the king. Esther invited the King and Haman to a banquet. There, she told the king that Haman wanted to kill her and her people. King Xerxes was angry with Haman and made a new law to save the Jewish people.
Esther’s bravery and trust in God were part of God’s plan to keep his people safe in Persia.
Our memory verse was from 2 Timothy 1:19. God saved us and called us to be his own people. It is a simple verse and I came up with an easy craft to help ease the memorization of the verse. I am looking forward to seeing their excitement about this lesson.
I always am looking for ways to peak their interest from the minute they walk into the door.
Who wouldn’t love to be King and Queen. I gathered all my materials and traced king’s crown using cartolina paper. Once I am happy with the results I wrote down the memory verse and asked the children to decorate their own crown.
Let the Royalty begin..
Teaching Children the Bible is an Honor.
Hope you have a fabulous weekend!
