Project Thankful: I am thankful for the opportunity to serve Him in fields His power is best shown.
I am not a teacher by profession but I strongly believe, there’s a teacher in me. When I was in high school, I joined ministries for children and taught them Bible Stories. In our DVBS (Daily Vacation Bible School) during the summer, I also became a teacher of kids from 10-12 years of age.
Whenever there’s an opportunity, I’d rather be a teacher than a director or a planner. It’s more satisfying and fulfilling to be hugged and remembered by the kids. When they see you somewhere, they know twas you who taught them about Jacob and David.
I enjoy teaching kids. I love the way they stare at me, so eager to learn what happened to Jonah when he was swallowed by that big fish. It makes my heart leap whenever I can find them thanking the Lord for saving Daniel’s friends from the fiery furnace. It’s so magical.
So whenever I am at home, I always volunteer to be the teacher. Even if it’s just for 3 Sundays, it doesn’t matter. I love to see the kids. I love explaining the Bible verses to them, helping them memorize those verses, and giving them lollies as a prize.
This photo is us with the kids. Last Sunday, our church is praising God for the new place for another children’s ministry. So we now have two children’s ministries. 🙂 What a blessing!
Thank You Lord. Thank You so much. I cannot repay You for Your goodness and for Your blessings.
