Is anyone else out there?
As parents and Bible Class teachers we can sometimes feel alone. Children are hearing so many unhealthy messages from the world that we can feel inadequate in sharing the truth of God’s Word with them week after week.
But remember there are others around the world who, like you, love children and have a hope-filled knowledge that God will make an eternal difference in their lives. They, like you, do not know the future challenges the children will face but they believe that the faith they will need comes from hearing God’s Word.
