THE VALUE OF CHILDREN’S MINISTRY

One fine day in a particular area in USA in the late 60s, there was an ordinary Sunday School teacher who resigned because she thought nothing is happening.  The kids were still noisy and inattentive in spite of her weekly effort.   Unknowingly, a number of young American soldiers were ambushed in Vietnam.   Many died instantly.

The wounded were brought to the camp for treatment.   As they were too many, the attending Doctors can only attend to one patient at a time.  But one young soldier called the attention of one of the Doctor.  That young man is dying yet he wasable to ask the Doctor to whisper his last words.  The young man said, “Please write to my former Sunday School teacher in America.  Please tell her thank you very much because one Sunday when I am still a kid, she led us in a prayer of acceptance that I accept Jesus Christ as my personal Lord and savior.  Now by faith, I believe that I am saved. Tell her that now I am going to heaven. Also tell her that I will wait for her in heaven to thank her there myself.” After that, the young soldier died.

Few days later, the doorbell rang on the residence of that old Sunday School teacher.  As she read the name of the sender, she could not believe she will receive a letter from Vietnam.  But as she read the letter, her tears began to flow and couldn’t help but cry.   From that day on, she decided to teach children again through Sunday School and actively participated in other Children’s Church activities.

The story was excerpted from one of the back issues of one known Christian booklet publication.

As to Vacation Bible School (VBS), it will only be for a few hours per day, in just five to six days.  If you think that teaching kids through VBS is easy, think again!  This is no ordinary school or summer activity as it is not simple as it looks.  This period is crucial to both attending children and volunteer teachers and workers. To those who have experienced it, the values and motivation kids learned from VBS will be their stepping stone to a clearer view of Christian life and pathway direction they will choose to go through in their life time.  Such activity will be very inspiring if the organizers and teachers will come-up with enjoyable and effective VBS.  As a result, this will strengthen their belief in God and will gain self confidence as they perform a task or goal or service to God through the Christian church they belong.  Many of them will grow to be a blessing to their family, churches, community because a teacher has stepped-up to share God’s love to them.   Same thing applies to Sunday School teachers.

If you are in anyway serve God through the Children’s Church, never feel that your efforts are not getting anywhere because Jesus appreciate everything you do for him.  One day, you will also be surprise as many will thank you in Heaven.

We are giving away a free VBS materials (downloadable).  It’s just that the language is still limited to Filipino (tagalog) at the moment.  If any publisher or fund grantee is willing to support, we are willing to collaborate as my original materials is being requested not just in the Philippines but also in other countries as in Hawaii and Zambia.  You can e-mail us at denissalvatierra@yahoo.com for details.

I salute the Sunday School and VBS teachers!

**only in  Tagalog dialect at the moment (Philippines native/main language). But if someone is willing to help or donate needed finances to print or reproduce my concepts in a form of Booklet or Magazine type, I am willing to offer them for free so that many kids and churches will benefit from it.  If I will be supported, I desire to give them for free to Christian churches that

reach-out to poor and less fortunate communities.  But I first need to print it out for them.

I offer them for free to small Christian Churches or Christian Missionaries with no budget to purchase expensive materials.  If you are in the Philippines or in other countries and are interested, just e-mail me at denissalvatierra@yahoo.com and I will provide you the link where you can download them.  Kindly just provide me details or background of your church.  Better if you can donate any form of support as I still need to do some more (other translations and follow-up materials).

As my free offer is being requested now to as far as Zimbabwe, Hawaii  and other countries, I will appreciate if someone would volunteer to translate the materials in other common languages and dialects.  We are also being asked locally in Cotabato, Kalinga Apayao, Bataan, etc.  We also seek grantee or donors so we can reproduce these materials into well printed booklet format or VBS materials kit.

You can e-mail me directly at denissalvatierra@yahoo for more details and instructions.

I also seek donors and/or partners so I can print the materials, reproduce and distribute them for free (in many dialects and language translations).  Per my experience, Vacation Bible School  materials are very crucial as it gives purpose not just to the children who attends, but also to the volunteer and community.  Many of the communities we held VBS experienced remarkable change for the better.  I conceptualized this materials not to earn but as a way of giving back without strings attached.

email me at denissalvatierra@yahoo.com if you want the downloadable materials for free.

Lesson Unplanned by Crystal Defanti

You may have heard it already.  I actually think more than twice if I will post this story or not… I did! 

http://www.metacafe.com/watch/3030224/crystal_defanti_video/

I am pretty much sure this story will be blown into proportion and it will sell like hot cakes in the internet.   I care for the kids but I also thought of Crystal as she was also a victim.  Both have to face the consequences of trauma.  It’s just that the kids will outgrow it and Crystal will have to live with it for the rest of her life.  Nonetheless, “Life goes on!”

photo excerpt from google images

This is the kind of lesson we barely get from classrooms nor on churches, yet it is real and it also happened to some people out there.  But this time, the lesson is not for children but for teacher’s to learn.  We were mostly taught how to do things except how to face a failure.  The teacher must also learn like anybody else.

This does not only happen to Crystal.  We all have our share of shame and scandalous action, hope the parents and the community will forgive.   The shame and agony are more than enough punishment for Crystal.  

“Let those who are clean cast the first stone.”
