Hi, and welcome to our second edition of C-Kers online. We have another edition of some of the stuff we would have been doing at C-Kers after Easter, so get ready for some craft, a story and a great trick from Shaun.
The story this week is about the prophet Elijah who was running from King Ahab who had threatened to kill him after he had been told that God was going to cause a long drought in the land because of the king’s worship of idols. After spending a while in a ravine east of Jordan where God sent ravens to feed him, God told Elijah to go to a town called Zarephath in the district called Sidon, north of the Kingdom of Israel and stay with a widow and her son. Here’s the story on video – we’ve no idea what the robot is doing – he wasn’t in the story!
Elijah trusted God and found that God helped him in a very difficult situation. He also discovered that God could use him to bless other people and show how gread God was. That didn’t just involve an unliited supply of bread, but also in God’s power, Elijah raise her son from the dead! You can read the full story in 1 Kings 17:1-24.
