Let’s Take The Tots To Jesus Part 2

I’m back with good news 🙂

Mid last year I posted about my struggle to find a place to fellowship with the girls. It got to place that I stopped struggling and decided to sit at home, also because I didn’t hear back from anyone in Mombasa.

Earlier this year, the desire to search again was reignited, so we started hunting again, but we didn’t quite find a fit for our ‘not yet three’ year old. When I was on the verge of giving up again, I prayed and told God that I would try once more and if it didn’t work out (read: I didn’t find a good fit), I was taking a(nother) long break. I wanted a sign that this was where we were supposed to be.

But God, answers prayers and He directs our paths ( if we let Him). When I went to this church, the person who greeted me said exactly what I had been asking the Lord. It later turned out that we were each other’s answer to prayer. I am in awe of the Lord we serve. I was reminded to remain obedient and allow the Lord to order my steps for the glory of His name. If we remain fluid, He will channel us where we need to go.
prov 21I don’t know how long we’ll be here and I’m okay with that. I’ve learned to live in the season and learn and grow where I am. Children’s Ministry here I come. Through this all I can see His hand, I know that through pregnancy and motherhood, God changed me. He gave me a heart for children. Who would’ve thought I’d be writing children’s books or even serving with Children.

 

Here’s to an unknown adventure with a known God.

Blessings,

Let’s Take The Tots To Jesus

One of my favourite times of my day is when I get to teach Ksena about Jesus. I’m constantly blown away by how God reveals Himself to her and that she remembers the songs, lessons and bible stories. I am just a vessel, my work is to plant seeds that God will water. He is the gardener.

We went to church recently and I felt so lost!! Stuck in between the big church where only mamas with infants can go unless the babies start crying and the children’s church where Ksena’s age group is not catered for.

I left church so burdened, wondering what to do. Thinking deeply about how other mums like me felt, those who have opted to stay home rather than run after a toddler who doesn’t quite fit in for one and a half hours. On my way home, I was challenged by the Holy Spirit, to do something about this burden I feel and start where I’m at.I tend to over think things like this and wait for the ‘perfect time’ when I feel it’s ‘convenient’ for me but I’ve been trying to obey the Lord more aptly, when He speaks. I say this even as this post has been seated in my dashboard for several days.

I read this article and it hit very close to home. The work has been cut out for us; for me. The harvest is plenty.

 

Here is an open invitation to a mum with a 1 year to 3 year old tot living in Mombasa, who would like to bond over a midweek cup of tea that we might not finish, as we teach our babies the word of God. Don’t worry about the content, we’ve got you :).

I am super excited to see what God does with this bible study. Where two or three are gathered in His name, He is there in their midst.

If you’d like to get in touch with me, or know a mama who would be interested, please send me an email via ess@bibi2be.com

Have a blessed week (:
