Our Bible school here finished up well end of June and new relationships were made between the kids of Casa Ray Orphanage and the team from PA. Our team consisted of 6 people, Beth & Andrew Railing, Hannah Robb, me, Laura Steager, and Jess Lapp.
Our lesson theme for the week was Growing Your Faith, using the verse 2 Pet 1:5-7 “For this reason add to your faith goodness, to goodness knowledge, to knowledge self control, to self control perseverance, to perseverance godliness, to godliness brotherly kindness, and to brotherly kindness love.” We also spent some time on the story of Joseph and how he had some of these character traits.
The kids memorized the verse 2 Pet 1:5-7 during the week, and the girls on the team taught each section with activities and projects. We made paper plate tambourines with the kids to learn joy, learned ACTS model of prayer with bracelets (adoration/adoratie, confession/marturie, thanksgiving/multumire, supplication/cerere) , made a frame with their parents/caregivers to learn about honor, and by the end of the week we did a play of Joseph’s life and his brothers’ visit to Egypt.
Thank you for your prayers for the kids. Continue to keep them in prayer that they remember how important prayer is in their lives. Pray also for the remainder of their summer and for when they start back to the rigors of school Sept 15th.
