So, at this point we had a name and ideas but still had no direction or idea on how to make this a reality. So...we kept praying.
Then one day it happened!! We could see things falling in place for the Crayon Box Club to become a reality. Zoee called one of her Chinese friends to see if she could play. The girls mom answered the phone and asked Zoee if we were Christians. When Zoee answered yes she asked Zoee if I could teach the Bible. Zoee said yes right away! And the birth of the Crayon Box Club was only weeks away!!
Within a few weeks I learned that there was another mom who had been wanting to start a bible study for kids but was looking for someone to teach it in English. I guess I was to be that English teacher!!
This Saturday will be our 4th week. We have this every Saturday morning in our home. It started with 6 children, and last week we were up to 11 (plus my 5). I know that there are 4 other children who are trying to arrange their schedule to be able to come.
Here are some pics:
This weeks lesson was on Noah's Ark. I have found that when teaching children who know very little English it is important to have visuals. So I was talking to my kids about how I wished we had one of our old toys from the states with Noah's Ark and all the animals. Jez is such a genius, she suggested making it out of legos!! The kids all loved it!!
Noah's lego ark!!
and the lego animals entered 2 by 2!
Here are some of our new friends.
God had a plan for providing us with what is considered a very large home in Hong Kong! On Saturday mornings it is now busting at the seems with kids. Please keep the Crayon Box Club in your prayers! We don't know what He has planned for this but we are excited to be a part of His plan!!
