1. GAMES: Research Game (10 minutes)
Place the group of children in a circle and the leader says ‘Change places if it’s true for you” and say “If you rode a donkey, have a big brother, like Mbatata, ever eaten Mandasi? etc”

This can start off as a fun activity and once the children relax you can start to add other things relating to the Corona Crisis that they are recovering from eg ‘If you were sick’ ‘If anyone in your family caught the virus. If you know anyone who died? etc

2. TEAM GAMES: (10 minutes)
‘You can Trust me’ team game:
Divided into two groups. Make sure that both the groups have the same number of players. Divide the children into pairs and blindfold one child from each pair. Each pair should have one kid who has the blindfold and one who doesn’t. Depending on the level and intensity of the activity, you can let the path be regular or add obstacles. The kid who is not blindfolded has to guide his partner carefully through the path and reach a safe zone. Once all kids are in the safe zone, switch the blindfold and put it on the kids who did not wear it earlier.

Bible Reading: Genesis 30:1-6a

When Joseph arrived in Egypt, a lot of things happened to him -- some good -- and some not so good. You are going to help me tell the next part of this story. I will tell you some of the things that happened to Joseph and you will tell me if they were good or bad.


(Use GOOD and BAD signs)

Teaching:
This week as Joseph starts to rebuild his life many good things happened. Next week we are going to learn about the bad things that happened to him.

Now Joseph had been taken down to Egypt. (Bad) Potiphar, an Egyptian who was one of Pharaoh’s officials, the captain of the guard, bought him from the Ishmaelites who had taken him there. (Good)
2 The Lord was with Joseph (Good) so that he prospered, (Good) and he lived in the house of his Egyptian master. (Good) 3 When his master saw that the Lord was with him (Good) and that the Lord gave him success in everything he did, (Good)

4 Joseph found favour in his eyes (Good) and became his attendant.(Good) Potiphar put him in charge of his household, (Good) and he entrusted to his care everything he owned. (Good)

Joseph had decided that if life gives you lemons, you make lemonade. He served Potiphar with integrity and industry, and when opportunity came, he would talk to Potiphar about Jehovah God. Even when his godly character was severely tested, he shined.

Joseph was actually a spoiled brat. He was proud and egoistic. His character needed a transformation before God could actually promote him.

The LORD was with Joseph. Those four simple words summarize the entire life of Joseph. God was with him. Regardless of the circumstances that came to his life, regardless of what happened in the life of Joseph, the Bible says, but God was with him. Four times in Genesis 39 the Scriptures say, the Lord was with Joseph. That was the secret of the success of Joseph.

Things came into the life of Joseph that would have discouraged most men. Yet, in the midst of it all, Joseph came through with great victory because the Lord was with him.

Many people became instrumental in Joseph’s character formation. God used Joseph’s brothers, Potiphar’s wife to name a few. He will do the same with you, sometimes these people that God uses can really hurt you but they develop character in you, just like they did in the life of Joseph.

When you come to a new place you have to choose your friends. Some will influence you and some you will influence. Some will follow you and laugh when you make a joke. Some will try to persuade you to follow them. Some will tease you. You may want to be popular and do things to fit in. You have to decide what sort of person you are going to be. Will you be known as one who speaks the truth? Refuses to lie? Makes peace or never fights?

Heal a Hurting Heart Curriculum

Just a couple of years ago nearly a quarter of a million households in Nigeria were at risk after heavy rains caused flooding that inundated 80 per cent of the country.

The rainfall began in July and continued into September, causing Nigeria’s two main rivers – the Niger and the Benue – to burst their banks. The resulting disaster is affecting 34 of the country’s 36 states and has caused 141 deaths and 265 injuries to date.
