How Is the Sower and the Seed and Pudding Connected?

The sower and the seed was this week’s lesson at the Marcos 10:14 Kids Club in Galeana, NL, Mexico. To help the kids remember the teaching Tonyia made chocolate pudding, gave each child a small bag of crushed Oreo cookies and a few gummy worms to add to the top of the pudding. It represented the good soil.

We discovered pudding is a real novelty here, the adults had never heard of it. They all liked it very much. To further drive the lesson home, teacher Patty used real dirt, rocks and plants to illustrate the lesson. The children learned Mark 4:20, “But those that were sown on the good soil are the ones who hear the word and accept it and bear fruit, thirtyfold and sixtyfold and a hundredfold.”  Several of the kids repeated it to show they had memorized it.

It was a very cold night and only about twenty kids came to club, but it was a great night for those who came. They had fun, learned more about Christ and experienced a new food.

If you know of someone with a large enclosed tent for sale, cheap or to donate, we would appreciate you letting us know. We have our kids club outdoors and a tent would help when the weather is bad.

Patty used a plate with different soil conditions to illustrate the lesson (click on a photo to see it larger).

The kids really enjoyed the pudding with crushed oreo cookies and gummy worms.

It was a cold night. The snack was hot chocolate with sweet bread which was a big hit.

The human wheelbarrow race brought lots of laughs.

Edith joined the girls to play a game of tug of war against the boys.

Pastor Rey joined the boys to try and beat the girls at tug-of-war.

The craft this week also supported the lesson.
