MORINGA: Moringa the Miracle Tree’s
leaves have the potential to save the lives of millions of people
on our planet. This session begins the education of the children
on Moringa, recognized as the ‘Miracle Tree’, ‘Mothers
Friend” and “Mother’s Milk.”
we will start by learning about the Trinity. Take a look at
the Moringa seed, (hold up a seed) it has three sides
which reminds us that God is three persons – God the Father,
God the Son (Jesus) and God the Holy Spirit. It’s one
seed but 3 sides, God is ONE God, He exists as THREE persons.
God created us in His image, to reflect His Son Jesus, His love
His glory through the power of the Holy Spirit.

Today we’re using this cup of flour and this
cup of table salt and water to understand the Trinity.
(Hold up the cup of flour.) Let’s pretend this is
God the Father. White is a symbol of purity, and we know that God
is purest of the pure. (Turn the flour over into your bowl.)
(Hold up the half cup of salt) Let’s
pretend this salt is Jesus. Jesus told us, “You are the
salt of the earth” in Matthew 5:13,
meaning we Christians “flavor” the earth by
sharing God’s word. And Jesus would certainly know about that;
he was the original salt. (Turn the salt over into your bowl.)
(Hold up your half cup of water.) Let’s
pretend this is the Holy Spirit. Water is often associated with
“spirit” in the Bible. In John 3:5, Jesus says “no
one can enter the kingdom of God without being born of water and
the spirit.” (Mix all ingredients with your hands)
We’re mixing all three ingredients together.
Is the salt still in here? (“Yes.”)
Is the flour still in here? (“Yes.”)
Is the water still in here? (“Yes.”)
All three are still here.( Stop mixing.)
Yet now we have one substance. (Hold up some dough and squish
it around in your hand.)
It’s one thing now—it’s dough.
And yet, all three ingredients are still there. (Mould it into
1. Can you name the three persons of the Trinity? (Father, Son
and Holy Spirit.)
2. Are there three Gods? (No, one God, three persons)
the English Moringa Children's Colouring Book
Moringa, is native to Northern India. It is
currently grown in many corners of the world, especially in
the tropics including Africa and the Caribbean.
Moringa, grows where over 5-35% of the population
The Moringa plant will grow in a drought. During
the summer the leaves may be lost. This does not mean that plant
is dead, because new leaves will sprout when the rainy season
Moringa has many uses. The leaves can be eaten raw
or cooked. Young-seeded fruit, flowers, roots and bark of the tree,
are used as food.
The leaves are rich in minerals and vitamins. This is an ideal food
in time of famine.
The leaves are used more than any other parts of
the Moringa . It is advisable to pick the leaves when they are young.
The leaves are removed from the stalks. The leaves can be steamed
or cooked like spinach. Providing a leafy green protein source
Moringa can be fed to your animals, cattle, rabbits,
sheep, pigs, goats and chickens consume the pods, leaves, branches
and young plants as food.
Moringa has been used worldwide to treat a variety
of diseases including Malaria.
Tests performed on Ewe Igbale proved that:
- Children maintained or increased weight and improved
- Pregnant women are healthier
- They had babies with higher birth weights
- Produce more breast milk
- Children grew up stronger.
If you see a young tree wilting in high heat, you
should give it some water.
Research has shown that young plants that are deprived of water
in their early growth period become far more drought-tolerant when
they become full-grown plants. If you overwater the leaves turn
yellow. The main reason for the Moringa Tree's hardiness is the
fact that it has a tubular taproot. This is where it stores all
it energy. If you feel at the base of the stem, just below the surface
of the soil, you will feel a 'ball'. This 'ball' actually gets larger
as the tree gets older.
6. APPLICATION / ENCOUNTERING GOD:
Let’s spend some time holding our Moringa seed feel each side
of the seed and as you do pray to God the Father, thanking Him for
loving us so much that He sent God the Son, Jesus. Pray and ask
Jesus to forgive us any sins that might be blocking God the Holy
Spirit from having full control over our lives.
Heavenly Father we pray 1 Corinthians 3:7 we understand that neither
the one who plants nor the one who waters is anything, but only
you God make all things grow. Help us to grow to become in every
respect the mature body of Him who is the head, that is our Lord
Jesus Christ. Let us with the help of the Holy Spirit grow in the
grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To Him
be glory both now and forever! Amen.
