Help with children’s ministry

Help, I need somebody
Help, not just anybody
Help, you know I need someone
Help!

I am sure you all have that popular Beatles song in your head now. I find myself singing this song quite often on Friday’s during our after school children’s ministry. When we moved to Gaborone, Botswana 6 years ago we started helping out with this pre-existing ministry and the children have not only grown in numbers from about 15 kids to 90+ kids but have grown in the knowledge of the Lord and many have been saved and baptized. We have had helpers come and go, but recently we have only about 2-3 of us there. Can you imagine trying to play games with 90+ kids, teach them bible verses and songs, and then teach a story and do crafts with them with only 2 or 3 helpers. Yep, it’s just like what you are picturing..chaos! In the Bible it says in Matthew 22:36-40 to love God and love people; sometimes we get the God part down but forget about loving people. Please pray that the Lord would raise up helpers that will be committed to coming and loving on these children each Friday!
