Bible School – Thursday

Thursday Evening, July 14

We did go to Bible school on Wednesday night, but I did not plan to take pictures. I regretted that decision when Dustan Martin began telling the children’s story. He had designed a “robot” that would make him a few of his favorite things.

He handed the robot a box of strawberries and after a blender sound, the robot (his wife was behind the box), handed him a strawberry smoothie. Then he handed the robot a few apples. After another blender sound, the robot handed him an apple pie. Then he decided to have some fun and gave it a container of nails. The blender made an awful sound and handed him a glass of nails and dirty water. The purpose of this story: Good things into your mind good things out. Trash into your mind trash out.

Now back to Thursday night.

bible school 2 (7)Ryan was in charge of devotions.

bible school 2 (8)My youngest brother – Steve – told the children’s story and later taught the adult class.

bible school 2 (11)His story was about a little girl named Katie who loved living near the ocean and drawing and painting. (Steve and Brenda’s son Kurt did the artwork for these illustrations.)

rrbible school 2 (12)Their old house – where Katie was born.

bible school 2 (13)Their new house overlooking the ocean.

bible school 2 (14)One day – just after Katie got a new sketch book and crayons – a bad storm came upon their house.

bible school 2 (15)When her mother quickly outside to bring in the laundry from the wash line, she asked Katie to close the windows.

Katie was involved in her sketching and forgot about the windows.

bible school 2 (17)Meanwhile her dad was out on the sea fishing – not realizing that a storm was arriving.

bible school 2 (18)Suddenly a strong wind blew around Katie’s house and blew a curtain against a lantern – knocking it over and causing a fire that burned their house to the ground.

bible school 2 (19)Katie was devastated and she and her mom had to move back to their old house while they prayed for her dad who was still out on the ocean. She thought that she could never forgive herself for being careless.

bible school 2 (21)Finally they saw a light from their boat, and when Katie went running to her dad, crying because her carelessness caused a fire that destroyed their house.

She was surprised when her father smiled and said, “It was because of that fire that I was able find my way home.”

The purpose of this story: God can do anything, use all thing for our good, and at times teach us lessons – even when we have been careless.

bible school 2 (22)After the children went to their classrooms, I listened to the first half of my brother’s lesson before going to their classrooms. I went later in the evening so I could capture some pictures of their crafts.
