Children's ministry

Geno, telling the story of Paul
In July we had a week with children and it was the start of the children's ministry. My heart was so happy when my sister told me that she feels that God wants to equip the children in our town to be a change for the town. She is such a blessing...I remember the time when she taught us at the Sunday School when we were children. I also remember how she led us (her siblings) to trust God in everything and pray. She's a true blessing in everybody's life. I can't forget her prayer, she used to pray: "Teach me to number my days aright, that I may gain a heart of wisdom" (Psalm 90:12). And believe me: she is sooo wise! I'm not saying she's perfect, but she loves the Lord more than anything and lives her life after God's Word. I'm thankful that God put her into my life. Thanks for everything, sister <3 You are very valuable and what you do makes a difference to all who surround you! 

Little Adi...I use to tell him, he's my boy ^_^

The first group of kids competing against the other group
We had five blessed days where we could teach the kids how much God loves them, how He wants to have a strong relationship with them and how they can change their circumstances if they work with Him. They learned about the lives of Zacchaeus the tax collector, Mephibosheth son of Jonathan, Noah and the flood, Paul the apostle, the Ethiopian eunuch. The stories were told by Geno, except Noah. God gave me the chance to tell the story of Noah and the ark comparing it to Jesus and the cross. God gave me such a revelation, I was amazed myself about the things I was telling. I've learned from it, too... After the stories there were questions to which the children had to answer to gain points and win a present. There were games which were made by Linda, who is a really great organizer and coordinator. The kids enjoyed playing the games she chose for them...I loved looking at them and seeing how enthusiastic they were.

God knows the desires of your heart (2)

God is really amazing. He amazes me every time. I was planning to buy myself a laptop, because I really needed one. I have a PC which I used and which was very faithful to me :) As I started my Master's Degree I needed a laptop, because I had to go to the city where I'm studying every weekend.

I know (because I've experienced it) that when you need something then you have to sow a seed first, on which God can turn water. So my sister who had to write her diploma paper and needed a laptop to work on Photoshop, Web design, etc. more than I needed it then. I really wanted to help her, so I took the opportunity to bless somebody with the exact thing I need and let God take my wish over. Thus I decided to give her some money. She bought a Dell and she wrote an awesome diploma paper and still uses it with such a blessing. She is a very talented "Photoshopist", web designer, journalist, etc. I was very happy for her and I knew God knows the time when I'll have my lap…

Jesus is coming soon, be prepared

The previous week I was so overwhelmed with my tasks at the university and the exams. I'm a "born" perfectionist and I always like to do everything the best way I can. I was so busy that I didn't have time to do my homework the way I wanted to do them and it was such a big burden. I didn't sleep enough and I was always thinking how to work everything out. I was burnt-out at the end of the week when I had to go to the courses and exams. My sisters tried to encourage me, but I was exhausted. God each and every time gave me encouragements, but I still felt the pressure of these things. As I was taking a bath, I listened to a sermon on my cell phone (I usually like to do that... hihi). Through that sermon God spoke to me and I was really touched by what the preacher said about grace. A sentence caught my attention, it was like this: "The Christians should hang on a rope upon the hell for a few minutes to see and realize what God rescued us from." He also to…
