My 6th graders gather around the table in excitement to see what lesson I have planned for them today.  I choose three volunteers and ask each one to make something specific: one a tree, one a pencil, and one a table.  The other children gather around telling them how to do it.  The class then sits down and I ask the question: the pencil and table are made from wood which comes from the tree, but who made the tree?  Their answer: God did!  Right answer!  I then begin our lesson on Creation… “In the beginning, God made the heavens and the earth….God saw everything He had made and said it was very good.”

About the author

I'm from Orange County, California and have 1 daughter and 1 granddaughter still living there. I began cross-cultural work 1st in Bucharest, Romania in May 2006 as a house mom to 8 teen orphan boys. I was then led to Dumaguete, Philippines April 4, 2008. The Lord’s calling on my life is to teach English using the Holy Bible; and the Lord God has opened up doors for me to teach in the public schools here for the past 3 years. I get to share the love of God specifically in the mountain region called Maningcao (ma-NING-cow) to 6th graders and have many opportunities to evangelize everywhere I go. I'm with Pastoral Training of Asia and they print gospel tracts in the local dialects here and I use these to evangelize in the Visayan language. I'm also part of the Hospital Ministry here where a team of us go in to the provincial hospital and preach the gospel and pray with the patients. I am truly grateful to serve the Lord and the Filipino people in this way.
