Long-suffering Job

Well.One more awesome Bible lesson we had with kiddies last week.It was such and such blessed time by the Lord Jesus!Oh, my!There were so much thrilled emotions, joy, smiles, happy souls.

Before Bible history we had an object lesson. At first children needed to inflate a balloon that symbolized the person.
While the balloon is inflated, the person is full of  pleasure, enthusiasm, hope. Then different unexpected difficulties come.Children let out a little air from a balloon.
We can easily live and with hope - just as a balloon, even then when our day is overshadowed by unexpected problems.

 Then children tried to inflate a balloon in a plastic bottle that is unreal and it is very heavy.It symbolized that during difficulties there is pressure and it is difficult, the person almost loses hope.

  It was very amusing to look kiddies diligent tried to make it. :)

But the solution and a way always is - Jesus Christ! We asked children how we can lift a jar up by means of our tired balloon, but not lost hope the balloon? Children gave different options.Then we inflate a  balloon in glass jar and the jar will rise over a table.

There are unforeseen difficulties and we are upset and we fall into despair. But the hope encourages us. Then, when all seems to us impossible, God shows us a way, granting hope, which not ashamed.
Children tried to inflate their balloons. It was so joy for them!


If was ever on the earth a person, who had reasons to lose hope, it was Job. But he not gave up but hoped for God.

After viewing of the animated cartoon, children played game, we called "Bring an animal to Job". Where everyone  had to find the animal (oxen, sheep, camels or donkeys) painted on a sheets of paper and to bring to Job. Wins, who made it the first. 

Thus we learned what animals Job had.It was so and so fun!

After studying of the Bible verse,"...the LORD gave, and the LORD hath taken away; blessed be the name of the LORD" (Job 1:21),  we had very special time. 

When children did a craft-sandwich and could eat it.The craft was ox or cow. As at this story Job lost his oxen. "And there came a messenger unto Job, and said, The oxen were plowing, and the asses feeding beside them, And the Sabeans fell [upon them], and took them away." (Job 1:14-15(b))

In one of orphanages we already held the same meeting recently and children were such happy! We couldn't find a craft of Job that would be easy and interesting to our sweet kiddies. Long thinking and praying the idea came, to make this craft -sandwich.

It wasn't easy to cut everything and to prepare for 40 precious souls.As we are full time busy. :)
 But at that time, we were so excited with the only from thought what a great joy it will bring to our beloved ones.

 And at this orphanage children were amazed simply! When we just showed the craft, they cried out, wow! wow!They sooo rejoiced and could not wait when we start to do it. :)


Vova, (supported teen by BOM) helped to kids.By the way, he is much better and should be at home soon.Thank you for prayers!

 Also kids cried out, bring such "craft" more often! And everyone wanted to make picture with their cute craft. :)

They were overjoyed and it was soooo awesome blessing!

Dima showed his joy and how it is tasty. :)))

Then they could eat their "craft".
