This semester at La Semilla After-School Program the students have been learning about the life and ministry of Jesus. One week they focused on the story of Jesus calming the storm on the lake, and the students re-enacted the story with boats they had created. They also drew a picture of a moment when they were afraid, and on the other side of the paper, wrote a Bible verse about trusting God – to help them conquer their fear. The students were encouraged to take the verse home so that they could have a daily reminder to rely on God when they are afraid. The next day one of the 3rd graders excitedly shared with the leaders, “You know that verse you had us do? It really helped me last night when I felt afraid!”
