Today I had the great opportunity to teach Children’s Church. 3-7 years old kiddos aren’t my typical audience but they are super fun. I wish I could be around for the conversations that happened at home after church. Here is an overview of the all the exciting things we talked about- life, literacy, Jesus and scripture in Papua New Guinea.
Song Learning- Jesus Loves Everyone in the Tok Pisin language:
Jisas laikim olgeta, olgeta, olgeta. Jisas laikim olgeta, laikim olgeta. Laikim Papa wantaim Mama, bikpela susa, liklik brata. Laikim yu, laikim mi, laikim olgeta.
A day in the life of an Onobasulu child:
After seeing pictures of life and homes in PNG, we read Matthew 7:24-27.
This is the story about the wise man who build his house on the rock and the foolish man who built his house on the sand. In PNG the wise man builds his house with a strong center post and the foolish man builds his house without a strong center post. This passage is not about the house building but instead about listening and obeying the word of God.

At the end of the morning the kids had lots of stories about Papua New Guinea, a cool coloring sheet and a Papua New Guinea bookmark. Sounds like a good Sunday to me. I hope the kids had as much fun as I did.
