GBC kids Friday ministry

Amanda and her friend Torie have been working with the children at Gaborone Baptist Church (GBC) for the past year. They have partenered with the pastor’s wife in helping with this ministry and we have been praying for more nationals to come alongside of us to help with this ministry. In the last month, the Lord has brought 2 college youth to work with us-Phatsimo and Lesh-we are so excited to have them join us.

We start our time together by playing for 30 minutes until all of the kids arrive.

Then we come inside and say our Bible verses together. The kids have learned so far: John 3:16, Romans 3:23, Romans 6:23, Romans 5:8, Psalms 118: 24, and Colossians 3:20.

We then have a bible lesson for the kids. We have been leading up to Christ’s death on the cross since Easter is just around the corner. Recently we talked about the Last Supper and you will see where Torie washed all 30+ kids feet. We try to rotate teaching and do it in both English and Setswana. Most kids speak English but especially the younger ones do not know English yet.
