In Released Time Bible Classes, the children are continuing to learn about the attributes of God. During the month of January, the theme is “God is Holy – So Be Holy.” The Bible story of “The Fiery Furnace” is being used to teach the children that we need to follow God’s example of holiness and choose to do what is right, no matter the consequences.
In February, the theme will be “God is Love – So Believe on Him.” The memory verse will be John 3:16 and using a visual of a bridge and a cross, the Gospel will be presented very clearly to the children. Please begin praying now that God will use this lesson to help the children understand and receive God’s gift of salvation.
Today I traveled around to many of the schools where I teach Released Time Bible Classes to deliver permission slips for the classes. I had some nice conversations with many secretaries and a principal or two as well. Please pray for these schools as they begin the new school year. I also ask that you would pray that many students will bring back signed permission slips so they can attend Released Time Bible Classes this year.
During the month of March the theme for Released Time Bible Classes has been, “God Gives Us Salvation.” It has been a privilege to teach the children that there is only one way to Heaven and that is through believing in Jesus Christ. This has been an exciting month with 17 children praying to receive Christ as Savior already and many more classes left to teach! Please pray for me as I teach the children. Please pray for the children as well! Thank you!
The theme for the month of February in the Released Time Bible Classes, is “God Gives Us A Ministry.” The lesson is from Luke 22:24-27 and John 13:1-17. I am telling the children about Jesus washing the disciples’ feet and how He gave them the example of being a servant. I talk with the children about how they can also follow the example of Jesus and have real JOY by putting “Jesus First, Others Second, Yourself Last”. We have had many new students join the classes this month. During my first class for the month 2 girls prayed to receive Jesus as Savior! Thank you for your prayers and support of this work.
