One important element of a Good News Club® is prayer. We strongly encourage our children to go to God in prayer for everything that comes up in life. We teach them there is no request too big or too small for God to answer.
No, he is not trying to haunt you. There is no such thing as a ghost. Your imagination may be causing you to be afraid. Maybe you have seen his body at the funeral home. Seeing someone dead can be hard for a young person.
Take some time this morning to be encouraged by God’s word. Enjoy this short devotional from Reese Kauffman.
“To teach a child is to touch a life forever.”
This line has appeared on everything from pencils to mugs to bumper stickers. Now you are a teacher wondering what kind of lasting mark you will make on the kids in your class. Here are ten ways you can positively impact your students for eternity.
Sometimes all you have is your calling.
God is so good. There has been a dramatic change in the behavior of the students since we started the club. The Word of God can change lives and some of the children were moved to ask forgiveness for their behavior.
Each day is made up of a series of actions. Behind the actions there are often words spoken. Behind the words are thoughts. Behind the thoughts are the basic motives. At that point we can identify the heart—the real you.
God is pushed out of the lives of so many of today’s children. Schoolteachers consciously avoid mentioning Him. On TV and in many homes His commandments are blatantly violated. Schedules are packed with nonreligious activities. You cannot remove all the opposition that distracts this generation from living for God. But you can demonstrate that Christians are to stand firm and give themselves fully to Him.
Child Evangelism Fellowship® of The Latin America Region (where CEF® is known as APEN) selected Chile as its country of focus to pray for, give to and go to, resulting in Missionary Project Chile 2017.
