Guatemala Missionary News, September 2014.
“Thy Word have I hid in my heart, that I might not sin against you” Psalms 119:11. We are always looking for ways to plant God’s Word in the hearts of the children we minister to. One fun way we have been doing this is through Bible games. After our Bible class last week we played Bible story charades. It was a big hit and the students loved it.
We also give weekly memory projects to the students and several of them will memorize all 10 verses in one week. It is so amazing to see them getting excited about learning God’s Word. We received a donation of New Testaments from a good friend of ours for the students at the Precious Moments School and Orphanage. These have been a great help as not only for use in Bible classes, but also for reading assignments due to a shortage of text books.
Thanks to a gift from a special friend, our students and children from the orphanage Fundaninos were able to go on a field trip to the children’s museum. It was a wonderfully educational experience for them and they learned a lot. They had never been to anything like it and it was amazing to see how much they enjoyed it.
It was a good reminder for me as well, to realize just how many life experiences children living in orphanages miss out on not having a family. We do our best to provide them with a semblance of that through our interactions with them, but we ask that you pray for them regularly, that God will fill in all the missing pieces of life with His Love.
