Lori's Side of the Story: Africa        

Thursday, January 3, 2013


A little boy in my preschool class came to school yesterday with a new shirt on with the world on it. I was talking to him about his shirt and he was showing me where we live and where Africa was and so on...I told him I had a cousin who lived in Sudan with his family. He asked if I had been to Africa to see him and why he lived there. I told him that my cousin was a missionary.
Student: What's a missionary?
Me: It's a person who travels to places where people don't know about Jesus and teaches them about who He is.
Student: Well....... (Long pause while rubbing his chin)....who's Jesus?
Me: He is God's son.
Student: Oh.
Me: Do you go to church or Sunday school?
Student: Well, I know about Christmas!
Me: Oh, Christmas is when Jesus was born.
Student: What?! What's a missionary again?
Me: It's a person who spreads good news about Jesus to people who don't know Him.
Student: Oh. (Pointing to the toy on the floor) Is that our new classroom toy that Santa brought?
Me: Yep.
Student: Exit stage left :-)

And that was the extent of my witnessing for the day, short and sweet.

  1. That's awesome! You might be the first person who ever told that kid about Jesus, sister. You're a missionary right there in your preschool!
