USA – “Let the little children come to Me”, Feb 11, 2017
“Jesus said, ‘Let the little children come to Me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these’. When He had placed His hands on them, He went on from there.” Matthew 19:14-15
We had 5 girls on the sleepover. A great dinner that Dina fixed and then crashing on the floor watching the “Chronicles of Narnia”. Madilyn cried when the lion died but was happy when he came back to life and told the kids, “An innocent man cannot be put to death.” We are so happy these girls have such a deep understanding of Jesus and the love of the Father. They poured out the pancake batter using a ketchup bottle and then took turns making everyone breakfast. The rest of the morning was blessed with Harvest Kids Saturday gathering and then in the afternoon, thanks to Chris Rivera, the girls got to make a squirrel and bird feeder to mount on the back fence. They are hoping the animals will appreciate it and Rocket, the housebound cat, will have the pleasure of watching them enjoy their snacks. Later, we visited Kelly & Lisa’s and enjoyed some good food, fellowship and birthday cake, before settling down for “The Story Lady”. We ended the weekend with a wonderful time of fellowship at the service, kid’s program and potluck with the Lyman Baptist church family. What a blessing to see these kids get to take their bibles in the bible bags that Veronica, Erika and Adrianna helped make at the Harvest Home. Thanks to everyone that is pouring into the lives of all these children and helping them to become true disciples of Jesus.
Jesus said, “And whoever welcomes a little child like this in My Name welcomes Me.”
