Let the Little Children Come to Me

“ Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these." (Mt 19:14)

During these almost two years that I have been serving at OLMC, God has asked me to serve in the Religious Education program. This has been a blessing for me, and I’m honored God has trusted me with this mission. One of the things I like the most about working in RE is being able to witness God’s love for the children. He loves them very much! And it is beautiful to see how the children open up their own hearts to receive this love.

The children have also taught me a lot, and they help me to grow in my own love for God. Every week I learn from them! Sometimes He wants us to be teachers and a lot of other times He asks us to be the students and just contemplate. God has taught me how to contemplate a lot. He is the one who is in charge and always goes before us.

I pray that all the children and the teens that are starting this new year will get to know and love Christ more. And that we, as a team, can help with our own testimonies, words and actions to make this happen.
