Three men in burning furnace

I`m very excited to share with you what an awesome Bible lesson we had last week in one of orphanages!The meeting was just amazing!

Because of the lack of time I will tell you just the things what impressed children very much.

This time we told them amazing Bible story about three young men in the burning furnace.(Daniel 3) Before story we showed them an object lesson.

The blue water takes your attention.  Water symbolized experiences and difficulties with what the person faces or meets during a life of journey.  That it was visible well as water is absorbed, we colored it with food colouring by blue color.  The candle symbolized the person. The burning candle is the God's child, the saved person. The not burning candle, not saved, not knowing God.  The glass jar symbolized the God's cover, protection. 
 At first we covered with a can not burning candle and in result happened nothing.  When we covered with other can a burning candle, water was absorbed inside of the can.  Thus God covers and protects the children from difficulties and gives strength to overcome a hardship.  Other word He assumes these difficults, absorbs them.  Children were impressed so much!  How it? How it happened they cried out! We showed them it several times. They were simply amazed and I love it! :) I love very much to see their impressions!

Then after Bible history and animated cartoon viewing, we played game "Overthrow an idol". In the history the three young men, they had to worship to the image what they didn't make having shown belief in live and true God."Now if ye be ready that at what time ye hear the sound of the cornet, flute, harp, sackbut, psaltery, and dulcimer, and all kinds of musick, ye fall down and worship the image which I have made; [well]: but if ye worship not, ye shall be cast the same hour into the midst of a burning fiery furnace; and who [is] that God that shall deliver you out of my hands?" Daniel 3:15  

The pictures of different images we pasted on plastic bottles.

Who answered a question of history, had the right to overthrow down idols, than more, that better.

When a child knocked down, all children cried out, "We worship only to alive God!" They very much liked game and everyone wanted to play!

After we learned the powerful Bible verse from this wonderful history.  "If it be [so], our God whom we serve is able to deliver us from the burning fiery furnace, and he will deliver [us] out of thine hand, O king". (Daniel 3:17) KJV

At the end as always was the favourite part of kiddies, to do crafts.
When we just showed the craft what they were have to do.They were so excited and amazed!Wow!

What is it? What is it? Show me closer! Give me please, I will view it better! :)

What did we do? We bought yogurts, ate it and plastic cup or container not threw out in trash but stored them till time for this craft. Of course, it took us some months that to eat 25 yogurts. :) But for us they were worth  as weight in "gold", as they were with a cover, what it was important for us. 
Then we colored partially these cups in orange color, only top and a cover. Then we have cut out an opening for doors.

Children needed to paste only a brick wall with the doors, printed in advance.To color picture of their young men and Jesus with them and glued inside of the cup. And then to close the container.

Children were simply amazed  and super excited! Especially they liked that inside it was possible to see young men and the door of the burning furnace could opened and closed. Honestly, we absolutely did not expect they would love and will be thrilled  so much by this craft. I love! I love it!

We had such blessed time with our beloved ones!Hope they will remember this story for a long time.We were super excited and happy for  the sweeties seeing their joy and delight!What a great joy and awesome blessing from the Lord Jesus!Thank you Jesus!


  1. What a creative idea! I am always amazed at what clever things the BOM makes out of simple materials. It's clear the boys are fascinated by their little "fiery furnaces", too. This is a wonderful craft to help the boys remember the story of salvation through faith and God's love.

    I hope things are improving for BOM, and continue to pray for all of you...

    1. :)Thank you very much, Susan! You are right, children enjoyed the story and craft as well very much!
      Usually 1-3 days takes us to find what we need, think about idea, be ready for a Bible lesson.Sometimes it takes us weeks.Jesus is our great helper and gives ideas thru different ways.

      Thank you so much for prayers!

  3. Something is really going here exceptionally! I really appreciate that all the children really enjoyed the Bible Lesson and other crafts work. I am gonna share these picture on my social account so people know about these wonder kids!
