We can win our fear with the God`s help.

Do you see these sweet and precious faces?

Do you see  these wonderful of our helpers with bags in their hands?Yes!These are our bags, what children helped us to carry into a class(room where we have Bible lessons usually).
 When they only have seen us near orphanage`s gate, they flew to us to meet and help to carry  bags. They are sooo lovely. Oh, how they rejoiced having seen us!

 Finally I can share with you a wonderful meeting we had with these dear kiddies last week.I was going to do it every day.Finally I can do it.And i`m so glad!We knew that this day will be cold therefore we have dressed  more warmly.But the day was nice. The meeting with children was amazing and we were excited much by this blessing!God is so good to us!We praise Him for His mercifulness to us.

Aren`t they precious and sweet in prayer?

After prayer we sang a song.We love to see that they remember Bible verses we have learned with them before.It warms our hearts to see and we are excited about that.So, when we remembered with them Bible verses and last story.We told kids a Bible story about David.Children loved this history very much!Especially when David killed Goliath.

 Goliath looks ridiculous and amusing. Isn't it?Children were laughing very much when they saw him. :)

I like different ideas, that lessons will not be same.And I like when something impress kids.

This Goliath took me many hours to make him ready.In this day when I was making him, I tired so much that I was sorry that began to make him.To think up so it would possible to assort and gather it again, as it is necessary to carry in transport that can to destroy it. It was necessary to think up, that will be practical, simple and inexpensive.To think about idea, to print, to color, to glue, to scissor out, to buy a fabric and many other things.I felt tired very much and went to sleep only at 5.00 AM in the morning.But not only I made Goliath.Sisters helped me in some things what I asked them.Praise the Lord for such good helpers!

I thought it was crazy idea and I wanted to have rest already when it was too late at night.I was sleepy, wanted to sleep and thought that I can not conduct a lesson because I will not have energy.Next day we needed go to this orphanage with this Bible lesson.But in same time it was fun and exciting!I was excited and had imagined the admiration of kids. :)

And it WORTH of it!Praise the Lord I felt well, when I have woken up in some hours to go to  orphanage.Children were excited, laughed to see him.When you see happy and smiling kids, it`s such a blessing and you forget about everything.We were so blessed to see them amazed.
 Probably it is interesting for someone to know.Feet we made from plastic empty bottles.We have wrapped up bottles by sintepon and have dressed atop old stockings. Also feet we have put in a sandals.
Goliath in a picture sits. On idea he should lie down. Simply we should pull the big sheet of paper forward on which he is attached and then it would seem that he lies instead of sits. That we have forgotten to do. :)
Anyway children liked him.

As our Bible history was about David. We paid attention to that, that Goliath is our fear which we can't sometimes win. But if we do something in the name of the Lord Jesus, same as  David. The Lord gives to us of  strength and boldness to win fear.Also Goliath, can be our sins or temptations which we should to win.

"Then said David to the Philistine, Thou comest to me with a sword, and with a spear, and with a shield: but I come to thee in the name of the LORD of hosts, the God of the armies of Israel, whom thou hast defied.
This day will the LORD deliver thee into mine hand; and I will smite thee, and take thine head from thee; and I will give the carcases of the host of the Philistines this day unto the fowls of the air, and to the wild beasts of the earth; that all the earth may know that there is a God in Israel. 
And all this assembly shall know that the LORD saveth not with sword and spear: for the battle is the LORD'S, and he will give you into our hands."  (1 Samuel 17:45-47) KJV

After history we played game where children should at beat Goliath as David. Who has given the right answer on a question on history. Had the right to take a stone and to kill Goliath, trying to hit in his forehead.We have made stones from old papers.Crease it in a ball, forming stones and have painted by gray color.
Children were more amazed to see a Goliath!They said, Oh he is so tall!Wow!

They were soooo MUCH excited by this game!They all wanted to be David that to kill Goliath.Even when we finished the lesson, they asked again to play at this game.Kids were so much impressed!We even did not expect such their reaction.They LOVED this game!

 By means of the next game we studied a Bible verse. It was necessary to overthrow one more a stone, it was Goliath, with the help of smaller stones.

Who has brought down Goliath, had the right to open a verse word, which we were going to study.

They liked this game too! And all of them hastened and  pulled hands that to play.

Bible verse: "And they shall fight against thee; but they shall not prevail against thee; for I am with thee..." (Jeremiah1:19)

 And in the end we did a craft, where David threw a stone in Goliath.As every time, some kids need a help.

When we have shown them this craft, they have been not so impressed. It looks very simple.But when we have shown that figures can move, they have been excited.Wow!That is great!And excited to do it.

With the help brads, David's hand can move when he throws a stone. And Goliath's figure can fall downwards. Also there is a moment when the stone flies to Goliath.They liked this craft, especially boys. :)

When we have finished the lesson, children didn't want to disperse and asked. Will you arrive tomorrow? Some of them began to kiss us.Ah, it was so lovely and heartwarming!It melts our hearts how they are precious and how they wait for us.

 Some of children saw off us till the gate the orphanage helping to carry our bags.

Our sweet helpers. :)

 With such full of joy in our hearts we came back to home.We were so much impressed and blessed!We praise and thanks Lord for each blessing and each moment to be with them.

Tomorrow I am going to share with you a blessing we have.What a wonderful and good God we serve!Please, come back soon!Thank you!
