VISITORS A HUGE SUCCESS!
This week Jessica and Stephanie held art classes, taught the children new games, and held puppet classes! The Puppet classes excited everyone, as most of the younger children were too little to become Puppeteers when this was taught several years ago. So, this time, a bench full of little boys got their turn at making the puppets talk.
Making party hats in art class.
Smiles and squeals of laughter were heard far and wide, as the children made up their own puppet skits. They practiced with both animal and children puppets.
Happy boys as they learn to work the mouth of a puppet.
Our children made up their own puppet skit and presented it to the class. Click the photo or link below to see the video.
Youth Leader Bertino gave the class a real scare when he slowly eased the huge leopard puppet under the curtain at floor level while all the children were looking up at the puppet show. The Leopard caused even more screams and laughter, but at least the kids stayed in the room!
We learned our lesson long ago that the snake puppet used in the Adam and Eve story must stay in its box! All children, with good reason, are scared of the deadly Mambas and Adders (rattlesnakes) in our area.
A visiting team used the snake in a Sunday School class about 10 years ago, and found out how fast 100 kids could jump through windows! The room was completely empty in 60 seconds!
So sneaky snake, who normally stays hidden, is now being used to guard the front door of Jess and Steph’s house! These young ladies are quite resourceful. You open the door to walk into their house, and meet the snake hanging on a piece of furniture at eye level. It does give one a fright, if you don’t know it is a fake!

We have had a “thankful week” for all that God has provided for us.
We prayed that all of you had a great week also.
