Bible Story Hour for Children

January 16:

We have a new event in our bookcenter this year: a Bible Story Hour for children. Our friend Ellen had the idea for this event back in the summer, and she and Sr. Emi organized everything. We held the first story hour on Saturday. Ellen read the children the story of Noah and the Ark, and then she asked them questions to help them understand the story better. Then they each made their own "ark" out of an egg carton (very creative!). Next Emily sang a song with them, and at the end they had a very appropriate snack of animal crackers. :) The children and the moms really enjoyed the event, and are already looking forward to next month's story hour. One more illustration of how our mission reaches all people of all ages!
