This week in Vancouver has been busy but alot of fun. I visited Good News Clubs and shared with the kids about Madagascar. It is always fun to tell kids about Madagascar and kids who live half way around the world. They ask fun questions. One child wanted to know if there were hotdogs in Madagascar, and one boy suggested I bring along some food when I go so that I don't have to eat the food there. :) One little girl excitedly told me she wanted to be a missionary when she grew up. It was amazing to hear the kids pray for the Malagasy children and for me. I can't wait to see how God answers their prayers.
The Teaching Children Effectively class is going good. I taught two classes yesterday and I will be teaching again tomorrow on how to give an invitation after a Bible lesson.


Teaching Children Effectively

Class went good tonight. I taught on classroom management. I enjoy teaching, but it has also been fun to listen to the other instructors teach and get ideas from them. :) I find myself listening to their illustrations and examples and trying to decide if I will be able to steal their ideas and use them when I am teaching in Madagascar. Tonight one of the instructors started class with a skit about a teen who had just gotten a car but had no clue how to drive it. The point was once kids accept Jesus, we need to help them know what to do next and teach them to grow. It was a great introduction, but I'm not so sure it would work in Madagascar. Maybe we can use an oxcart instead of a car. :)
Tomorrow I will be visiting a Good News Club here in Vancouver. I enjoy telling kids about Madagascar and kids who live halfway around the world. My prayer is that the kids leave with a burden to share the Gospel and follow God's leading in their lives.
