No-prep lessons for parents to help their children follow Jesus

MEET WAJIRA

Wajira was just a young boy when he first joined 30 Hearts and became part of a family. Over the years he has grown into a smart young man.

Watch the video (read the subtitles for your little kiddos) and then discuss Wajira’s story together.

TALK ABOUT IT

What would it be like to live in the forest?

Sometimes there are children who do not have a mom and a dad to care for them so they have to find food and places to sleep. But it usually isn’t safe for them, it is scary and lonely.

Even when Wajira was alone did God still know where he was?

Yes! God saw Wajira and loved him.Now Wajira has a mom who loves him. He eats food and has a comfortable bed to sleep in. God rescued Wajira and gave him a home and a family.

FUN FACTS

In the video, Wajira talked about how he enjoys to learn about space and dreams of learning more about the stars.

Did you know?

The first living creature to go into space was a dog.

There are more stars in the universe than there are grains of sand on all of Earth’s beaches.
There are over 100 billion stars in our galaxy alone.

BIBLE VERSE

Psalm 147:4

He counts the number of stars; He gives names to all of them.

QUESTIONS

Can we count all the stars in the universe?

Why does God give names to the stars?

If God knows each star’s name do you think he knows your name?

BIG IDEA

God cares about you.

  • Just like God saw and helped Wajira, God sees and cares about you.

  • God knows everything about you and wants you to know how much he loves you!

Close in prayer

Father God, thank you for creating the stars and knowing each of their names. I am so happy that you know my name too. I pray that Wajira learns more about the stars and remembers that you will always see him and love him. Thank you for caring about us and loving us.
