Nov 2011 Day 3 Sunday School Service

Light and Darkness

We enjoyed going to a Sunday school service today with the kids of Josue 1:9 Church of Los Brasiles, Nicaragua.  There were only a few kids when we first arrived, so the youth pastor sent the kids back out into the community to gather more kids and by the end of service we had more than 100 kids there.  They taught us dances to songs that our kids sing in their Sunday school classes at home. Only these were in Spanish, of course.  After praise and worship and a lot of dancing (and sweating), we broke up into three large groups where our leaders taught about darkness and light from Matthew 6:22-24.  Here they talk about “the eye is the lamp of the body.  If your eyes are good, your whole body will be full of light.  But if your eyes are bad your whole body will be full of darkness…”.  The kids had to give examples of darkness and of light in the world and then they role played with one child representing darkness and the other trying to bring light to the darkness with his words and actions.  We were all humbled at the conclusion of the class when they asked all of us from the U.S. to gather in the middle of the large circle and they prayed for light to come to the U.S.  Amazing!  We were being prayed for by the people of Nicaragua, the very people we came to serve were ministering to us through prayer.  On the bus ride home one of the kids said, “That was the best service ever!”
