We’ve also had special visitors (Room 2 moms!) come in and teach Room 2 some Korean and Armenian! It was very special to learn how to sing in new languages. Our friends gave it their best, and sounded wonderful! (Thank you again, Evette and Dina.☺️)
**PARENTS: Let a teacher know if you’d be interested in coming to our classroom to teach us a song in your language! We’d love to have you!!😃😃😃
Another special moment was celebrating our Friend-Of-The-Week this week, Ms. Daisy! She surprised our classroom with special visitors: her twin Sister, Car, and with Kennedy, her sweet and mega cute pet dog! Friends had a blast learning about Ms. Daisy’s life, as well as meeting her guests.🐶💕 It was also her birthday; HAPPY BIRTHDAY, MS. DAISY!
Ms. Daisy also brought with her a special item to share with the class: her coin collection from the many places she’s traveled! As a small science experiment, friends had the chance to use salt, vinegar, and water to clean the coins and see them be extra shiny. See for yourself, below… Very cool, right?!💰✨
As each week goes by, the Teachers in Room 2 are amazed and truly inspired as we see the progress that the students are making. From learning to write, draw, and recognize numbers during small groups, to learning about prayer, forgiveness, and trust in God, like how Abraham trusted God with his own son Isaac… We feel that it’s safe to say that our friends in Room 2 are thriving, and we are so proud of them. We celebrate the way Jesus is growing and using our classroom to shine lots of light and love, both inside the classroom and outside of it too.❤️
There are also a couple of small but special moments of faith and compassion that we saw happen this week that we’d like to share with you, because we believe it is worth recognizing and celebrating God’s faithfulness in Room 2, no matter how small.
The first is that a Room 2 Teacher, Ms. Jessica, had the special opportunity to listen to a conversation that two of our friends were having during our yard time. After a misunderstanding occurred, she heard one our friends say to another, “It’s ok, I forgive you,” and they were able to resolve the issue without needing a teacher’s help.
How incredible is that? Our hearts were deeply moved to see our Room 2 friends putting Jesus’ love and grace into action. This is TRULY what it’s all about.💖
The second moment was when a Room 2 friend got hurt on their knee, while playing outside. Once they had their ouchie cleaned and had their fresh bandaid on, they asked Miss Wendy if she could please pray for Jesus’ healing on their knee. It was such a special and vulnerable moment of faith, that we felt it had to be shared. This friend knew in their heart who their Healer is, and didn’t waste any time in asking for prayer from a teacher for Jesus’ healing.☀️
This simple action reminded us that Faith is simply believing and trusting the truth of how much God loves us, listens to us, and is good toward us. He wants us to ask, because He loves us. It’s simple. Sometimes, we just need to ask Him, like His kids that we are.
Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you.(Matthew 7:7)
As always, here in Room 2 we hope to continue to be a classroom with an open heart for Jesus to shine bright through us as each week comes and goes. Like Abraham, we pray for courage to trust in our good God, and in His plans to prosper us and give us a hope and a future that glorifies Him. (Jeremiah 29:11)
Until next time, blessings.😊
P.S. Enjoy this week’s pictures!
