Bethel is truly becoming a place of prayer. Listen to this story from one of our Lighthouse teachers:
I wish you could have seen it. As a grade 2 class we spent our first five minutes identifying prayer requests--from birthdays, to anticipated surgeries, to new homes being built. We shared so much we ran out of time to pray before our story time had arrived. We listened to the story of King Josiah and were reminded of Israel’s being awakened to a renewed faith in God. When we came back, we added to our prayer list—not typical grade 2 things. The children talked about fellow classmates who had passed away in car accidents and who died from cancer. I just listened and thanked God for awakening in them the freedom and desire to share and pray. We prayed through a very long list of concerns and praises.
I am not so sure that I am teaching them. I am pretty sure they are teaching me. Thanks God for the gift of time and prayer and conversations. Lighthouse is alive and well and a part of the mission of this church.
Yes, thank you, God, for the way you are stirring in the hearts of Lighthouse children and their teachers!
