USA – Harvest Kids, June 12, 2021
We are thankful for a beautiful day for our Harvest Kids to come together. Thanks for all the cans that have been donated and for change that was added to the kid’s collection to help finish the primary school they are working to complete in central Africa. $9,000 is an ambitious goal so we are praying for some of the big Harvest Kids to make a few donations to help these young people accomplish their goal. Obviously, the kids were looking forward today to meet the baby Harvest Rabbits that were born a few weeks ago. Everyone volunteered potential names and because we don’t know which are boys and which are girls it took a little longer, but they got it done! After the new kids put their handprints on the wall and had lunch, Lynn from Child’s Evangelism Fellowship shared a wonderful lesson, starting off with the kids singing the names of all the books of the Bible. Her message was on salvation, and she shared a true story about a young Muslim boy that had hurt his foot and came to a medical clinic that was operated by some wonderful Christian people that took care of his foot and introduced him to the gospel using the wordless book. After he was healed and went back to his village, he used the book to share Jesus with the other children in his village. We finished the morning making crafts using the colors of the wordless book: black representing our sin, red the blood of Jesus, white the forgiveness of our sin, green the Holy Spirit that helps us grow and gold representing our eternal relationship with Jesus promised to all that believe. Now we anxiously wait for the baby rabbits to be weaned and sent to their new adopted home.
