Let the Children Come

““Teach these words to your children and talk about them when you are at home and when you are away, when you lie down and when you rise.” (Deuteronomy 6:7)

Today our group of travelers visited the Kihumo School, where we met the teachers and students, and had the absolute joy of watching a presentation they had prepared for us. They sang, danced, twirled hula-hoops, and even put on a fashion show!

Then we watched as Rev. Kibaara talked with them about the Bible and what the verses in today’s lesson about the burning bush meant to them. The children eagerly raised their hands and told us that God wants them to obey their parents and to be kind to one another.

After lunch they celebrated the birthday of a classmate and served us cake. When it was time to leave they showered us with hugs and high fives, and asked us to give their greetings to our families and friends.

How marvelous to see these pre-schoolers being raised according to God’s Word, and being taught to love one another just as God loves them. These children are our future, and the future of the Church. The world needs the unconditional love they showed us – the love that will create the Kingdom of God right here on earth.
