At our friends' dairy farm, the final Bible club event unfolded with more than 70 people scattered all over their backyard, chatting, playing silly games with Ben, de-boning the pig carcass, and face-painting. I got to sit down and listen to many children's four-week's worth of Bible verses, some whizzing through mechanically, others thoughtfully pulling each word from their memory.
Earlier that day, I had suddenly realized that I would need to say something to make the skits and verses and songs more connected and understandable for anyone listening for the first time. Remember, that I hadn't done any Bible teaching at club this year, so I wasn't in teaching mode! Thankfully, the Lord gave me ideas and the listeners of all ages were attentive and interested! I ended with the question: Which soil is your heart most like (from the Parable of the Sower)? Pray that God would provoke a yearning for good heart-soil in these individuals.
At the campfire later that evening, my friend who is facing the likelihood of her husband leaving, told me that because of being a part of Bible club and the conversations that have happened as a result, she senses a shift in her understanding of God. She says that before she knew there was a God and believed in her head some things about Him, but now it's different - that belief is inside her and making a difference in her life!! Please pray for a continued miracle to happen in the opening of her life to the God-Who-Sees and that that same miracle will come to her husband and her son.
Thank you for partnering with us in Quebec, sowing the Word!
