The church that we are working with, Calvary Chapel Cape Town, started a JOY club in one of the schools here. Basically what it is, we can go into the school from 2:30 - 3:30 on Tuesday and do a Bible teaching. It is completely voluntary on the child's part, but we do get to make announcements and hang up posters and speak at an assembly.
We didn't know what to expect on the first day, yesterday. Well, I must say that the Lord was working wonders. We had almost 100 kids show up for our first class!! What a huge blessing.
They had the opportunity to hear about David and Goliath and we got to talk to them about their fears. Now this class represented grades 1-7 so you can imagine the things we got to hear they were afraid of! Everything form snakes and spiders to "this girl sitting next to me." It was quite a treat.
We got to sing worship songs with them and also pray together. If you think about it, please pray that the Lord would use this in a mighty way for the kids. The school has a large Muslim population so this is a great inroad to share the Gospel and let our light so shine before men. Pray that the hearts of these precious kids would be turned towards the Lord.
That is it for now, more updates coming soon. Thanks for all your support and prayers, we would not be reaching the lost for the Lord without all of you.
Grace and Peace,
Bob, Suzanne and Bobby Scott
