There is a sweet uninhibited interest found in children's meetings. They love to sing, study, and come to meeting on the run. The evidence of the Holy Spirit's presence is noted when they show gratitude and love to help in anyway they can. It is really fun to teach them the Scripture songs and watch their excitement during the daily quiz testing what they heard. They diligently take notes every meeting so they can get a stack of prizes from America. Their squeals and joy are contagious. It is amazing how many chapters in the Bible they easily memorize for a little calculator or set of color markers.
The programs always start with nature object lessons. It is really fun because the children are always curious about the world about them. You can catch their interest quickly with a nature story. You can get them to listen with nature when they might not listen to a Bible story. Once you have their interest in the nature story, you quickly weave in the Bible truth and they hear it before they realize the topic has changed to Bible.
Since 1984 Dr. Rose has enjoyed teaching children about God's love. Colorful backdrops of heaven and the sanctuary walk through model help keep the interest. In 1992, she began illustrating a color book containing the essential truths fundamental to salvation. Not considering herself an artist, she prayed for help. Each artist she contacted wanted too much for each sketch. It would have cost 10,000 dollars to do the project. She did not have it but did believe Jesus would help with His hand on hers. One night, when Jenny was one years old, Dr. Rose was quietly drawing up a picture to interest children in theme of heaven. The duck looked too sick to live in heaven. Discouragement overwhelmed all efforts to continue. The next morning at the swimming pool was a live duck who stayed three months till the project was completed and then she was gone. There is nothing too hard for the Lord. Jer. 32:17
