Kids are great. In grade 5 they can read well and they are curious. They are still too young to have formed a strong world view. They are looking for answers.
God loves these kids. They need to know that.
I'm sure I tell them God loves them. One visit two girls did not come up to take a Bible. But when we started talking about how God loves them, they ran up to get one. Another time, two girls prayed with Lori, accepting Jesus as their Saviour. I'm thrilled that Angel has kept on with her faith.
In one school, a boy asked: "So, how do you become a Christian?" Jim, a member of the Fly and Dust Reserve was with me. The kids knew he had been a chief and they trusted him. He told them in simple language. The teacher was so grateful. It was the best day I ever had.
I've been doing this for a long time. And I always make sure I show the kids how to get around the Bible. I start with the Christmas story in Luke.
Not everyone supports us. In some schools, teachers interrupt. It's not easy.
But we are having an impact. I'm praying for someone younger to catch my vision and join me so they can continue to plant seeds of Truth when I retire.
"Are not two sparrows sold for a penny? Yet not one of them will fall to the ground outside your Father's care. And even the very hairs of your head are all numbered. So don't be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows" - Matthew 10:29,30
