Family Devotions



God wants us to tell the world about Jesus


When our team went to Ethiopia in 2014, they met many orphaned and vulnerable children. Sena was one of the first little girls that they met. Since then, she has gone from hopeless to hopeful!

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


What do you think it was like for Sena to not have parents?

Sena was an orphaned child, which means she did not have a mom or a dad. But now Sena  has a mom who loves her and takes care of her!

Why didn’t Sena do well in school before coming to 30 Hearts?

Many children who are poor don’t have the opportunity to go to school, and if they do they may not do well because they are hungry, tired, or sad from their home-life.

Why does Sena want to be a missionary when she grows up?

Sena wants to tell people about the Bible and how God loves them!


About 1.5 billion people do not have a complete Bible in their language. Sena wants to be a missionary to these people (*

Sena enjoys singing in the choir at her church

When Sena’s mom hears of someone who is sick, she tells Sena and she will pray for them


Matthew 28:19-20

“Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.”


What does it mean to “make disciples”?

Do you have to be a missionary when you are older to tell people about Jesus?

How do you feel knowing Jesus is with you ALWAYS?


God wants us to tell the world about Jesus

Sena wants to be a missionary pastor when she is older so she can tell people about Jesus who have never read the Bible before. But, even now, Sena is being a missionary to her family and friends. She is caring for people and praying for them even at a young age! This means you can too! God is with you always and He will be with you while you tell your friends and family how much He loves them!

Close in prayer

Lord Jesus, we praise you for giving us Jesus and for always being with us. Thank you for giving us your Word so we can learn more about you and tell others how great you are. Please give Sena and us the courage to love others, pray always, and tell the world who you are. Amen.
