Place: Elizabeth Kirik, Parnu
Saturday 29th October 2011 .Place: Elizabeth Kirik, Parnu.
Today, the team, Pastor Sam Tukura and Mike & Dee Briston and Stuart & Jane Chalmers left Lavassaare at 10.20 am. We supported Kristi and the sunday school leaders in King's Day. This is a joint effort of the children's churches in Parnu. King's Day has been running for several years and we have been observers of King's Day in past years. But this was the first time we have had an active part. Firstly, Pastor Sam was preaching, secondly Jane and laterly Dee had organised all the craft which had been taken out by suitcase from the UK. Thirdly we had earlier this week been involved in promoting the craft work to the Sunday School teachers so that they could effectively encourage and enable the children to create their own works of craft. Pastor Sam preached on "The Boy Jesus born in Bethlehem". The theme was wise men and women and children always seek Jesus. Pastor Sam highlighted the need of children to seek wisdom, by seeking Jesus and for Sunday School teachers to protect and bring the wisdom of God to little children, by growing in their own knowledge of God. On more than one occasion, it was clear that the children and the adults were blessed by having an international speaker of Pastor Sam Tukura's stature involved in an event in Parnu City.
The actual timing of the event was 12.00-14.00pm, and after it was over we tidied up and then all went our varying ways. Stuart & Jane then went on to Stephanni's with Kristi & Arvet for a pizza and encouragement. Tomorrow we leave at 09.20 to go to Saarde Kirik for the morning meeting at 11.00 am.
