Awesome Sunday

This morning in JR Church, I was talking with the girls about Easter. They did not know the meaning of Easter. (Some of these girls have been coming to Church since last August.) One thing led to another and we got to talking about Heaven and Hell. Alisha started crying. The more we talked the more she wanted to pray. The other girls wanted to too, but I am not so sure if it was because of how Alisha was acting. Alisha was the only crying. I asked them if they wanted to pray and the all said yes. I then took them out to the regular service, and interrupted our Pastor. I told Him, that these girls wanted to pray and ask Jesus into their lives. He stopped preaching and everyone gathered around these precious girls. I truly believe that Alisha really got something. Before she left for home, she asked me if Jesus would help her to be good and to do the right things. I told her that He would. I also told her that if she ever felt that she did something wrong, that all she had to do, was to ask Jesus to forgive her. Please, please pray for her and the other little ones.
Also pray for another girl, Jocelyn. Jocelyn is 13, and last fall one of the boys from her school and a close friend of hers, hung himself. She asked me today, if He was in Heaven. She said that some other boys made him do it, so it really wasn't his fault. I told her that only God knows, and that she has trust in God. Pray that God will truly deal with her heart, and also help her this awful time in her life. If you think that I could have handled this better or if there is something that I can say to her, please let me know.

That's an awesome story Becky! I'm so glad Alisha wanted to pray. I will try to remember her in prayer. I taught Jr. Church for about 15 years and even with children, there are those special times when the presence of Jesus is felt so strong and the kids will be stone silent and listen intently to what you say. It's in those times that you watch the Lord work His wonders on their heart and you get so full of joy you want to bust!! I cherish those moments in my heart. God bless as you work with your kids.
