1. GAMES: (10 minutes)
I went to the Market: Give each child 5 beans and then start asking
questions, if they say Yes or No they give you one of their beans.
Start with fun questions but this game can continue into more therapeutic
2. TEAM GAMES: (10 minutes) 'Jesus
says' similar to 'Simon says'
One player takes the role of "Jesus"
and issues instructions (usually physical actions such as "Jesus
says ... jump in the air" or "Jesus says ...clap
your hands ") to the other players, which should be followed
only when prefaced with the phrase "Jesus says". Players
are eliminated from the game by either following instructions that
are not immediately preceded by the phrase, or by failing to follow

English 'ABC’s of Salvation' video
Look at this beautifully wrapped gift. Do any of you like to receive
gifts? Of course you do! If I were to give this package to you and
ask you to give me five dollars, would it be a gift? No. When someone
gives you a gift, it doesn't cost you anything. It doesn't come
with any conditions. All you have to do is accept it. That's what
makes it a gift.
What was the best gift you have ever received?
(Allow the children to answer)
Chichewa Lesson #8 Visual Aids
I want to tell you about a gift that is, without question, the
greatest gift ever given.
What is that gift? It is the gift of eternal life. It is the gift
of God and it was given to anyone who wants to receive it. The Bible
says, "For God so loved the world that he gave his one and
only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have
eternal life." Whoever -- that's you and me. The greatest gift
of all is for you and me.
When someone gives you a gift, it is never polite to ask, "How
much did it cost?" But in this case, the Bible tells us how
much God's gift cost -- and the cost was great. It cost God his
only Son. Can you imagine how much God loved us to send his one
and only Son to earth to die on a cross so that we could have eternal
life? Eternal life -- what a gift! And all we have to do to receive
it is believe and accept Jesus as our Saviour.
WHAT STOPS US FROM
GETTING THIS GIFT?
Sin – What is sin? Sin is anything we think, say, do or don’t
do that displeases God.
We all sin, and we cannot save ourselves.
There must be a different way – God’s
On one hand, God loves us and doesn’t not want to punish
us; but on the other hand, God is just and must punish sin.
Mulungu ndiye chikondi.1 Yohane 4:8b
Koma wosamasula wopalamula; Eksodo 34:7b
DO YOU SEE THE PROBLEM?
God solved this problem by sending His son Jesus
Jesus is God!
(Jesus is standing on a chair that is covered with a
gold cloth, dressed in His blue and white wrap, wearing a
crown holding a sign that says ‘GOD’)
He came from Heaven to earth.
(Jesus steps down from the chair, removes His crown and
has a sign that says ‘MAN’)
He lived a perfect life (Double thumbs up!)
He died on the cross …(Jesus holds both hands out and
head sagging like He is on a cross)
And rose from the dead, (Jesus lifts His hands up and steps
forward from the grave victoriously)
To pay the penalty for our sins and to purchase a place in Heaven
for us. (Jesus lifts His hands up to Heaven praying)
Jesus is in Heaven now offering us the FREE GIFT of eternal us
life.(Jesus reaches under the golden chair and pulls out a gift,
He steps up on the chair and holds the gift out)
The Bible says: “For God so loved the world, that He gave
His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him will not perish,
but have everlasting life” John 3:16.
Optional: Ball game (Through ball from one
child to the other and each child resites ONE word of John 3:16
before tosses the ball)
HOW DO WE GET THIS GIFT? BY FAITH!

6. APPLICATION / ENCOUNTERING GOD:
If you are a Christian this is just a reminder you can say this
prayer again. But if you have never given your life to Christ Jesus
then this is your chance. Tell Him " Heavenly Father, thank
you for sending your Son Jesus, to show us the way and to die for
our sins. I am sorry for the wrongs I have done, I am turning away
from them and receiving your gift by faith. Today I thank you for
forgiving me, I trust you to take care of me and help me have the
power not to hate and not to fear. In Jesus Name Amen"

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
