Every Thursday night the Marcos 10:14 Kids Club brings kids together in the Galeana, NL, Mexico area to learn about Jesus. What an opportunity, the Lord has given True Path Ministry, to be a part of these children learning about the most important person in life, Jesus. Each week the kids are taught a Bible lesson, pray, sing songs, play games, have a craft that relates to the lesson and are fed a meal.
What do we teach at these club meetings? Below is a summary of some of the lessons that were taught during the last several weeks, and below the text are photos from the past few weeks.:
“Lord, our Lord, How excellent is Your name in all the earth” (Psalm 8:1). The kids were taught the facts about the Biblical passage, that the Jews took literally, the third commandment “You shall not take the name of the Lord your God in vain, for the Lord will not hold him guiltless who takes His name in vain” (Exodus 20:7). Also, the kids learned how God’s name ”Jehovah” was written in Hebrew. The craft, which went along with the study, was to write their name on cardstock, cut out each letter, put the letters on construction paper, add a ribbon and attach to a them to a wooden rod.
During another lesson, they learned about Esther being adopted. And the fact when we accept Jesus as our savior, we are adopted into God’s family. “A father of the fatherless, a defender of widows, Is God in His holy habitation” (Psalm 68:5). To help the kids remember the lesson they completed an Esther color-by-number page.
Psalm 91:4 says: “He shall cover you with His feathers, And under His wings you shall take refuge; His truth shall be your shield and buckler.” In this reading God promises if we believe in Him, we can feel safe and be without fear. He is with us and His presence gives us peace. The craft was a chicken made from an egg carton, and the kids added the beak and the comb.
God cares for His sheep. God is a Shepherd who loves, cares for and protects us, forever. “The Lord will guide you continually, And satisfy your soul in drought” (Isaiah 58:11). By adding some elastic and cotton balls to a cut out of a sheep’s face the kids made a mask.
When we seek God, His promise to bless us comes to pass. The Lord helps you so you may fulfill the commitment to follow Him. “Therefore know that the Lord your God, He is God, the faithful god who keeps covenant and mercy with those who love Him” (Deuteronomy 7:9). To help with memorization the kids filled in the words of the scripture on a foam bookmarker.
“…nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.” (Romans 8:39). God’s love is so great and He is always willing to forgive us. The craft for this week was a puzzle in the shape of a heart.
We are able to keep this ministry going because of your prayers and financial support! THANK YOU! Please continue to pray for our ministry and for these children! Sharing Jesus in Mexico is our calling!
